Celebrating Mt. Chocorua in Art!

Asher B. Durand "Mt. Chocorua" now hanging in Jackson, NH

With two great shows of White Mountain Art on view right now: One at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and one at the Museum of White Mountian Art at Jackson in the Jackson Historical Society it's had not to notice the general agreement that Mt. Chocorua is a mountain well worthy of art. Here's the cover image from the MFA show:

Sanford Gifford "Mt. Chocorua" 

Before I begin the wholesale celebration of paintings of Chocorua, here are some inspiring words to put in you in the mindset of the poetic feelings that this mountain can induce:
