The American artist Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900) specialized in painting landscapes that had a ‘spiritual dimension’ in each of his works.
Frederic Edwin Church is one of the most widely traveled artists whose destinations included South America (especially the Andes), and countries in Europe and the Middle East (countries/ territories now known as Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, etc.).
Church would often travel on foot at exotic locations, make sketches of the scenes that appealed to him the most, and paint them when he returned. His landscapes show scenes from most of the places he visited.
