Church, Frederic Edwin.--Born at Hartford, Conn., May, 1826. Studied with Cole, but soon assumed a style of his own. His great paintings of "Niagara," and the "The Heart of the Andes," have been widely exhibited in the U.S., and gave the artist the highest celebrity. Among his other great works are "The Icebergs," and "The Rainy Season in the Tropics." His pictures stand in high estimation both here and in Europe. [Appendix.]
