The Wide Frontier: American Landscape Painting in the Nineteenth Century
Thursday, August 22, 2013
As more territories joined the United States during the nineteenth century, artists made images that celebrated the various types of landscape found in different parts of the country. This lecture by Michael Cassin, director of the Clark’s Center for Education in the Visual Arts, looks at the work of painters such as Winslow Homer, Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt and the Hudson River School—painters who recorded the splendors of the North American landscape, from New England to the Rockies, from sea to shining sea.
The lecture will be held at the Albany Institute of History and Art. For more information and directions, click here or call 518 463 4478.
