Samuel Colman moved to New York City at a young age and studied with prominent Hudson River School painter Asher B. Durand. By the age of 19, Colman had his first work accepted by the National Academy of Design and became an associate member only three years later. He reached full membership in the Academy in 1862. Like the first generation of Hudson River School painters, Colman traveled widely, exploring the Conway Valley of New Hampshire, Catskill Mountains of New York state, along with Europe and the American West. These travels enabled him to cultivate a singular approach to the Hudson River School tradition.
