"b. Ohio, 1839. Pupil of Hans Gude, and studied in Duesseldorf and London. First exhibited in the National Academy, 1865. Elected Academician, 1869. Member of the American Art Union, Society of American Artists, and American Water-Color Society. " In landscape art the American artists are leading the world to-day. Who is there now living who can excel George Inness when Inness is at his best. And who, better than Wyant, can lead man's thoughts away from himself and the petty affairs of his world, into a contemplation of the mystery and beauty and wonderfulness of god's world. The pictures of Inness and Wyant, in technique differing as they do, in the same manner show the spectator how much there is in nature that he has seen without perceiving, and create in him a Fuller desire to study the sublime teachings of nature for himself. Their pictures, like those of Corot, are full of the spirit and the poetry of nature. But while Corot only gives us an impression of the spirit of a scene, they give us the realization of the scene itself along with all of its spirit. And they do this without sacrificing the poetry that Corot saw in nature. - Louisville Spectator, 1883. " As a painter of the wild and rugged scenery of the northern wilderness of New York, Wyant has few equals in academic ranks. - Art Journal, December, 1876. " A pool in the Adirondacks. An exquisite effect of a foggy morning with a light breaking through the clouds. One of Mr. Wyant's most charming pictures." [P. 24.]
