In this lecture, art historian and LAM Curatorial Fellow Jean Stern will discuss the history and influence of the Hudson River School. The Hudson River School was a group of artists who, in the early 1800s, chose to paint the beauty of Nature. It was the first truly American art movement and at first, it centered on the unspoiled wilderness up the Hudson River Valley out of New York City. The locales included the Adirondack Mountains, the Catskill Mountains and the White Mountains. The artists are often considered the first environmental activists in the United States. Mr. Stern will examine paintings from this time in an illustrated lecture including time for questions.
