Thomas Hotchkiss is considered one of the more poetic of the 19th-century landscape artists. A friend of the well-known Asher B. Durand, he first drew recognition in the late 1850s as a member of the Hudson River School, and moved to Italy in 1860, where he was welcomed into the literary and artistic circles of the American community in Rome.

His delicate paintings and watercolors of the Italian landscape and its ancient monuments are said to touch on many of the myths surrounding the 19th century American experience in Italy.
