Hudson River School in the News and at Questroyal

Published on March 9th, 2012 | Posted in Events and Exhibitions

Between the unveiling of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art here in New York, the opening of the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, and even a Thomas Cole exhibition at the Louvre Museum in Paris, the Hudson River School is a hot topic of late. Click here to read the latest article on the subject posted by CNN.

The Hudson River School’s dominance in recent headlines perfectly coincides with our annual exhibition:

FREEDOM RINGS: PAINTINGS OF THE HUDSON RIVER SCHOOL
An exhibition and sale

On view: March 7–April 7, 2012
Hours: Monday–Friday 10–6, Saturday 10–5 and by appointment

The exhibition opened this Wednesday, and classic scenes of the Hudson River—the birthplace and name sake of this American art movement—such as George Herbert McCord’s Palisades, 1874, will grace the galleries through Saturday, April 7. But this exhibition is by no means limited to the Hudson River; scenes of the Catskills, Adirondacks, Lake George, New England, and the western United States are all represented, as are such renowned artists as Alfred Bricher, Thomas Cole, Jasper Francis Cropsey, Thomas Doughty, Asher Durand, Regis Francois Gignoux, David Johnson, and John Frederick Kensett. A highlight of the show is Albert Bierstadt’s Old Faithful, a masterfully painted scene of an iconic American subject by one of the movement’s most accomplished artists. A complimentary exhibition catalogue, featuring 37 works, is available by request on the publications page of our website.
