Seize the Day original oil painting of early Hyde Hall by Hope Morrow Glidden

Hyde Hall Cooperstown NY by Hope Morrow Glidden. Hyde Hall was designed and built by George Clarke (1768-1835), an Englishman whose great grandfather was prominent in the early colonial government of New York. As Secretary and later Lieutenant Governor of the province between 1703 and 1743, the elder Clarke amassed 120,000 acres in the Hudson and Mohawk valleys. He returned to England in 1745 having amassed a sizable fortune. That land was the inspiration for young George Clarke to create a new life in the United States. The young Clarke cleared and leveled a site on the side of a hill he named Mount Wellington in honor of Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, who had been a schoolmate of his at Eton. He commissioned plans for a small country villa from Philip Hooker, the leading architect of Albany, and construction began in 1817. In 1814 Clarke married Ann Low Cary Cooper, widow of Richard Cooper, elder brother of James Fenimore Cooper the famous author. Richard Cooper had been Clarke’’’’’’’’s land manager. This painting depicts the husband and wife coming down from their home in horse and buggy.
