  • Overview

    Joseph Henry Hidley (1830-1872) for most of his life a resident of the rural town of Poestenkill, Rensselaer County, NY-- is generally known today as the painter of a few remarkable mid-nineteenth-century townscapes, and little else. But current research conducted by regional art historians, Warren R. Broderick, has identified dozens of works by Hidley that expand our understanding of this rural, self-taught artist.
