Comentarios: A member of the second generation of Hudson River school landscape painters, McCord traveled widely throughout the U.S. and Europe during his career. He was primarily a Brooklyn resident with a studio in New York (including 51 West 10th St. during the mid 1870s-early 1880s) and beginning about 1883 had another studio at his home Morristown, NJ, where he also taught art classes. He painted landscapes in the Berkshire, Adirondack, and Laurentian mountain ranges, plus Florida and the Upper Mississippi. He was also among a select group of artists who painted Grand Canyon scenes for the Santa Fe Railroad. Much of his time was spent in England, Scotland (in 1890, he was commissioned to paint landscapes around Andrew Carnegie"s castle), France, the Netherlands, and Italy; he lived for three years in Venice, and later in Paris. He exhibited regularly at the National Academy for three decades. He also wrote articles on art for the Richfield News.
