Watercolor, One of America’s most popular artists of the nineteenth century

Thomas Waterman Wood [1823-1903], A Visit To The Barn, Signed and Dated

Wood was honored with his election to full Academician status in the National Academy of Design in 1872. He served as vice-president and president of the Academy and was elected president of the American Watercolor Society.

Wood was also a teacher… one of his students was the wife of Columbia University professor John W. Burgess. Burgess and Wood became close friends; out of this friendship came the financial backing necessary to establish the artist’s gift to his hometown… the Wood Art Gallery at Montpelier, Vermont.

To populate the galleries’ walls, Wood traveled to Europe where he painted copies of works by the Old Masters. The Wood Art Gallery houses more than 2,000 original paintings, drawings, and watercolors by Thomas Waterman Wood, one of America’s most popular artists of the nineteenth century.
