Outlet of Niagara

Ferdinand Richardt, "Outlet of Niagara", 1855. Collection of Melinda Young Stuart.

This is an experimental entry to help me learn how to create and maintain this blog, as a means of sharing my research and discoveries about the Danish-American 19th-century artist whose life and works I have been collecting and documenting for twenty years. 

I begin by posting a quick image of the first Richardt painting I acquired, one of his views of the Niagara Falls area. This one depicts the 'outlet of Niagara', the Niagara River looking north toward Lake Ontario, as seen from a cliff below the Falls.
