DUNCANSON, ROBERT Born in New York, educated in Canada and subsequently settling in Ohio, Robert Duncanson (1817-1872) became a distinguished landscape painter during the mid-nineteenth century. Basically a romantic, his paintings were in the tradition of the highly romantic Hudson River School, which specialized in grandiose reproductions of wild landscapes. Among his most noted paintings are "Blue Hole, Flood Waters, Little Miami River" (1851), "Seascape" (1871) and "The Drunkard's Plight" (1845).
