Past Exhibition

The Hudson River School

January 5 – March 9, 2002

During the nineteenth century, the United States witnessed a period of tremendous growth and expansion of its boundaries. Beginning in the 1840s, the Hudson River School painters sought to capture the beauty, tranquility and, at times, sheer power of the American wilderness. The exhibition will feature a range of works that celebrate the American
landscape from the Michel and Victoria Hersen collection.
