Hugh Bolton Jones (1848 - 1927)

American landscape painter Hugh Bolton Jones' works would be widely exhibited throughout his career. He had studied at the Maryland Institute before traveling to New York where he worked with Horace W. Robbins. In 1867 he exhibited for the first time at the National Academy of Design.

He travelled widely to find his subject matter, and from 1865 to 1876 he painted scenes from Western Massachusetts to West Virginia. These early works showed a distinct influence of the Hudson River School of paintings, with realistic compositions that displayed romanticized views of the regions he was painting. Occasionally, Jones would rely on Luminism to introduce atmospheric effects into his work.

In 1876 he traveled to Europe and painted at the Pont Aven artist colony. He began to practice "en plein air" techniques, especially those of capturing the light and color of the landscape. By 1880 he returned to America and further refined his techniques in landscape work. During this period of his life he achieved great acclaim, receiving medals and awards, and being elected to the prestigious National Academy of Design in New York. Jones continued to actively paint until the time of his death in 1927.

His paintings are in many major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C.
