The magnificent American landscape, as represented through the eyes of nineteenth-century landscape painters, is the subject of this new exhibition. "American Sublime" presents the foremost American landscape painters of the mid-nineteenth century, especially the Hudson River School and other painters of that time, who first gave complete visual expression to the idea of America as a vast new world. They took to a logical conclusion many of the ideas about landscape that had preoccupied European artists in the 18th and 19th centuries, while retaining the special character of the country they were exploring: magnificent, dramatic, and subtle, by turns. The exhibition will include about 90 oil paintings featuring works by Bierstadt, Church, Cole, and Cropsey, among others.
