Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the mid-1800s, a group of painters based in New York turned their focus to the theme of the natural landscape to demonstrate the beauty of the wilderness. Their work enjoyed a popular national success that no other group of artists has achieved since. This seminal survey of the artists marks the first presentation of the outstanding collection at the New-York Historical Society. It features works by all the greatest artists of the group, including Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Albert Bierstadt, and Frederic Church. Accompanying a major traveling exhibition, the book is also timed to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudsons first voyage up the Hudson River.

Synopsis:

The New-York Historical Society, a preeminent research and education institution, is home to both New York City’s oldest museum and one of the nation’s most distinguished independent research libraries. Founded in 1804, its holdings cover four centuries of American history.

Dr. Linda S. Ferber is the museum director at the New-York Historical Society.
