Frederick Matzow, 1861-1938, and active from 1912 until his death. Native of Norway, but immigrated to Conneticut where he became part of the Hudson River School movment, painting moody Romanticist landscapes of the country's vast virginal forests, mountains, coasts, and other monuments of geographic beauty. Such works were well collected throughout the turn of the 19th to the 20th century by American nouveau rich, before eventually falling out of style in favor of Impressionism. In that respect, Matzow is a bit of a hanger-on, a die-hard believer in the Hudson River School at a time when Impressionism was really coming into the vogue.

Hudson River and other pre-impressionist art is not selling terribly well right now, and as with all art, price is largely a factor of the notability of the artist. Unfortunately, Matzow's work has consistenly failed to meet even low estimates for his work at recent auctions, bringing in an average of $200-$400 against estimates of $400-$600, with the highest his work has ever brought being $800, and the lowest about $50.
