Narrative

Joseph Woodwell, a Pittsburgh native, spent five years painting in France. Influenced by the French Barbizon artists Jean-François Millet and Charles Émile Jacque, he introduced their style and methods to Southwestern Pennsylvania landscapists—referred to as the Scalp Level School—in the late 1860s. His landscapes follow the French model closely in their modest subject matter, loosely brushed paint, restrained coloring, and atmospheric effects. It is characteristic of his approach that he chose the least exciting aspect of Niagara Falls for his view of The Gorge. The Gorge appeared in the 1899 Carnegie International exhibition. Woodwell was a trustee of Carnegie Institute and a member of the Fine Arts Committee for many years, during which Pittsburgh artists were well represented in the annual exhibitions.
