    Reception: Friday, March 29, 2013, 6:30-8pm

    This exhibition features over 40 paintings of White Mountain and New Hampshire landscapes from Hudson River School artists. Drawn from the collections of several Phillips Exeter Academy alumni (Classes of 1943, 1951 and 1965), the paintings depict the emerging connections between the landscape, culture, and the development of national identity. The natural world, for artists such as Thomas Cole (1801-1848), Benjamin Champney (1817-1901), and Alfred Thompson Bricher (1837-1908), symbolized moral fortitude as well as spiritual renewal. Sites such as Mount Washington and Franconia Notch inspired awe and curiosity.
