Daniel Charles Grose (1838-1900) Artist Biography
Daniel Charles Grose (18381900) was a prolific Canadian - American painter of the Hudson River School who was active between 1865 and 1900. Grose died in Alexandria, VA, USA on February 24, 1900.
Very little is known of Grose's early years. He may have migrated to Canada or directly to the United States, though the proliferation of his early work in Canadian museums and galleries suggests the former. Most advertisements of his work call him an American or Canadian artist.
Grose's work indicates an affinity to the second generation of the Hudson River School (ca 18481900). The Samuel Dorksy Museum of Art, lists two of his works as examples of the Hudson school. Most of Grose's exeunt work depicts pastoral landscapes, or romantic scenes with ruins. The earliest known Grose works are dated 1865 and consist of a series of landscapes in the province of Quebec.
Grose was a member of and exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Association.
