The Hudson River School: Nature and the AmericanVision

by: New-York Historical Society, Linda S. Ferber
In the mid-1800s, a group of painters based in New York turned their focus to the theme of the natural landscape to demonstrate the beauty of the wilderness. Their work enjoyed a popular national success that no other group of artists has achieved since. This seminal survey of the artists marks the first presentation of the outstanding collection at the New-York Historical Society. It features works by all the greatest artists of the group, including Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Albert Bierstadt, and Frederic Church.

Thomas Cole: The Artist as Architect

"The wide variety of selections from Frederic Edwin Church's collection of his own paintings shows the master in all phases of his career, in sketches and finished paintings, depicting the breadth of his subjects and the high technical skills that established him as an eminent and influential artist in his own time. As works he held on to or reacquired and kept in his house during his lifetime, they embody the heart of his artistic vision and convey a deeply personal slant. As pictures he hung and lived with at Olana, they tell the larger story of that extraordinary place and are as illuminating when seen in context as on their own.

by: Abraham Davidson
While Ralph Albert Blakelock (1847-1919) appears in every major survey of American art, no current books exist on his life and work. In this comprehensive study, Abraham Davidson argues convincingly that Blakelock is one of the greatest American painters of the nineteenth century, whose art ranges from the romantic visionary school reminiscent of Albert Pinkham Ryder to, later in his tragic life, a more realistic, physically experimental style often touching on abstraction. Davidson examines the haunting influences of Blakelock's visits to the American West and the Caribbean while a young man, reflected in his strikingly original landscapes.
