An esteemed and significant second generation Hudson River School painter, William Hart is primarily known for his finely detailed, bucolic American landscapes. He was born in Kilmarnock, Scotland in 1823, and immigrated with his family to Albany, New York when he was eight years old. His younger siblings, James McDougal Hart (1828—1894) and Julie Hart Beers (1835—1913), also went on to become accomplished landscape painters. The Hart brothers began their artistic careers painting decorative side-panels for a coach-maker in the Albany-Troy area.
