    In the mid-1800s, a loosely knit group of American painters—now known as the Hudson River School—forged a self-consciously “American” landscape. This vision was grounded in exploration of the natural world as a resource for spiritual renewal and an expression of cultural and national identity. Drawn from the celebrated collection of the New-York Historical Society, this exhibition features 45 magnificent American landscapes, including Thomas Cole's iconic series of monumental paintings, “The Course of the Empire,” as well as works by Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Edwin Church, Jasper Francis Cropsey, and Asher B. Durand, and others.
