Itinéraire pittoresque du fleuve Hudson et des parties latérales de l'Amérique du Nord

Collection Data

French artist Jacques Milbert toured the Hudson River region in the 1820's and compiled a series of colored drawings of views he encountered on his trip. Upon his return to Paris, an account of his travels illustrated with lithographs of the views introduced the beauties of the Hudson River to the European public.
