Johnson’s drawings and paintings of pastoral scenes in New York State and New England make him a typical member of the Hudson River School. His fine draftsmanship reflects the influence of his teacher, Jasper F. Cropsey, while his mature landscapes, impressive in their high detail and cool green tonality, are close to those of John F. Kensett.
