American Paradise: The World of the Hudson River School

by: K. Avery, etc.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's commitment to American art goes back to its origins, when one of the main reasons for creating the Museum was to provide the city and the nation with an institution that would attract and instruct American artists, as well as acquire their works.

Kensett and Frederic E. Church, both prominently represented in this exhibition and publication, and both on the roster of the Museum's first Board of Trustees, elected on 31 January 1870.
