Susan (Moore) Waters, a self-taught artist (1823-1900) was born in Binghamton, New
York, her family moved to Friendsville, Pennsylvania where she was raised. Albeit self-
taught she enjoyed and demonstrated enough talent and skill to earn her tuition in
seminary school by producing natural history drawings for one of her instructors.

During her artistic career of nearly 60 years, her oeuvre included two different bodies
or work; she is well-known for her early naively-rendered portraits. Waters would
eventually become a successful still-life and animal painter, displaying a level of
proficiency rarely achieved by folk painters. Her highly accomplished still-life paintings
and animal pictures were in demand as fashionable parlor ornaments.

Mrs. Waters exhibited in the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia; her work is
represented in the collections of the New York State Historical Association, Wiltshire
College, Newark Museum, Cortland County Historical Society, and the Arnot Art
Museum among others.

Antique Hudson River Valley School Painting, The Kosciusko Monument at West Point
Attributed to Edmund C. Coates (1816-1871)


Antique Hudson River Valley School Painting, The Kosciusko Monument at West Point
Attributed to Edmund C. Coates (1816-1871), entire view

The painting, A View of West Point and the Kosciusko Monument, mounted within a gilt frame,
shows the gated Kosciusko Monument at the upper left, with the secondary focus being the
Hudson River dotted with sailboats and a steamer, and a tertiary focus…two women strolling in
the foreground as sheep graze to their right. Kosciuszko's Monument honors Polish General
Tadeusz Kosciuszko at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.
Kosciuszko designed the defenses of the West Point garrison (1778–1780) during the height of
the Revolutionary War, when George Washington considered West Point to be the most
important military post in America. The pedestal and shaft of the monument was first proposed
in 1825 by John Latrobe and was dedicated in 1828.

The painting was exhibited at the U.S. Department of State, Art in Embassies Program.
