William Louis Sonntag

William Louis Sonntag, Sr. (1822-1900) was an American landscape painter. Born in Pennslyvannia in 1822, he spent many years perfecting his technique in Cincinnati, Ohio. Becoming an established and highly regarded landscape artist, he began making trips to Florence, Italy in 1853. Several of these trips were made with his friend Robert Scott Duncanson. In 1856, Sonntag permanently moved to New York to become a leading painter of romantic landscapes of several scenes from his travels in Italy. Sonntag was a member of the group known as the Hudson River School. Some of his paintings go beyond the movement to a grandiose expression of Manifest Destiny. There is strong evidence that several of Sonntag's pieces were scenes he had seen from photgraphs only. Grand Canyon, Yellowstone River, Wyoming, for example, is a landscape that Sonntag never traveled to. It is most likely based on a photograph taken by Frank Jay Haynes of the canyon in 1885.
