Comments: A popular painter of bucolic landscapes, Jones enjoyed an extraordinary 60-year exhibition

record at the National Academy. Most of his landscapes were painted in the Northeast, but he also traveled widely,

painting as far South as Maryland and West Virginia, and in the summer of 1874 he was in the Blue

Ridge Mountains. From 1876-80, he was in France, studying in Paris and painting at the artists colony at

Pont-Aven, Brittany. His brother was Francis Coates Jones. Also appears as H. Jones Bolton.
