Seneca Hope: The Life and Landscapes of James Hope


In 1872, landscape painter James Hope moved from Castleton, Vt. to Watkins, N.Y. – a small village on the southern end of Seneca Lake – where he spent the last twenty years of his life capturing the beauties of the glen on canvas. There are few reminders of Hope’s time in Watkins Glen. He is remembered for his large canvases depicting the Antietam battlefield, painted from sketches made during his service as a captain in the Vermont Infantry during the Civil War. To bring this artist to life, author Frank Steber imagines Hope’s life from his days in Castleton, to his studio portrait in New York City and finally to his life in Watkins Glen.
