Letchworth Middle and Upper Falls, Genesee River Gorge
Oil on Canvas, 1860-1870
Letchworth State Park is known as the “Grand Canyon of the East” and contains the highest waterfall in New York State.
Anna Gleason was a member of the “Nameless,” a group of artistic friends of William P. Letchworth, the patron of what would become Letchworth State Park. These friends often visited Glen Iris, Mr. Letchworth’s home (now an inn at the park) to paint and write.
