After a single month of formal instruction in Hudson, New York, John Bunyan Bristol became a self taught artist who worked directly from nature. He is best known for his sentimental landscapes painted in upstate New York, Connecticut, western Massachusetts, and Vermont. Bristol was a regular exhibitor at the National Academy of Design after his first submission in 1858, and was made an Academician in 1879. He exhibited also at the Century Association, Artists’ Fund Society, and the Salmagundi Club. He was awarded a medal at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1876, and an honorable mention in the Paris Exhibition of 1900.
