Andrew Bunner was best known for his Venetian scenes from his extensive travels throughout Europe, although he had a passion for painting landscape views along the Hudson River and in New York State.
Bunner exhibited every year from 1865-1896 at the National Academy of Design, most of these years at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1877-1890), and frequently at the Boston Art Club and the Brooklyn Art Association as well as the Paris Salon in 1878.
Bunner’s work is in a number of museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Yale Museum, Connecticut, and museums in Pennsylvania, Colorado, and New Mexico. He was elected to the National Academy in 1880. The majority of Bunner’s work is comprised of landscapes, often views including water with a great deal of interest and detail, as is seen in Fourteen Mile Island.
