Leonard Ochtman

Leonard Ochtman (October 21, 1854 – 1935), American painter, was born in Zonnemaire, Netherlands. He was the son of a decorative painter. His family removed to Albany, New York in 1866.

He worked with a group of artists who were important in the development of the impressionist movement in the United States. In 1882 he began to exhibit landscapes at the National Academy of Design, and he became a National Academician in 1904. His most characteristic pictures, which recall the work of George Inness, are scenes on Long Island Sound and on the Mianus river.
