From before the Death of Painting

For several weeks now I’ve been meaning to pay a visit to the New York Historical Society to see their current exhibition, The Hudson River School at the New-York Historical Society: Nature and the American Vision. (How much better the name would be if the subtitle became the title, and vice versa.)

Painting from the Hudson River School piqued a latent interest in art for me when I saw the Frederic Church exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in early 1990. The current exhibition of more than 100 pieces, I can say, is the best show of works from the period that I have seen since then.

Here are some impressions I took away from seeing the exhibition:
