The Poetry of Nature: Hudson River School Landscapes from the New-York Historical Society

The Poetry of Nature: Hudson River School Landscapes from the New-York Historical Society

The paintings in this exhibition reveal the natural wonders that sparked the first artistic movement in the United States. The American landscape inspired a loosely knit group of 19th-century artists to create paintings that present nature as spiritually renewing and culturally defining. Sketching outdoors and composing their ideal visions of the landscape in their studios, these artists filled their canvases with majestic mountains, tranquil valleys, enchanting forests, shimmering lakes, and luminous skies.
