 Mount Chimborazo, Ecuador (1864)

 Cotopaxi (1855)

Heart of the Andes (1859)

Morning in the Tropics (1877)

 Tamaca Palms (1854)

 The Cordilleras, Sunrise (1854)

 Tropical Scenery (1873)

 View of Cotopaxi (1857)

View on the Magdalena River (1857)

I can't resist posting a modern parody of Church's 1862 Cotopaxi painting, beautifully done by Joshua Caez:
