    Kaaterskill Clove is one of the most significant artistic sites in the United States, an intersection of nature and art at the heart of the American landscape movement. Located in the eastern area of the Catskill Mountains, the site was not far from the homes of Thomas Cole, father of the Hudson River School, and Frederic Edwin Church, second generation artist in the movement and teacher of Jervis McEntee. McEntee, who also lived in the Catskills, would have been acutely familiar with the local landscape and its offerings. In the present work, McEntee's depicted a common subject in an uncommon way—incorporating a unique and personal perspective of this picturesque vista. McEntee provides Kaaterskill Clove with a measure of quietude, gently impressing upon the viewer its subtle harmonious order.
