The New York Times recently gave a nod to the “The Hudson River School: Landscape Paintings from the Albany Institute.” The exhibit features the largest collection of Hudson River School artists in a single exhibit in the past 50 years.
The Albany Institute of History & Art, located just across Washington Avenue from the New York State Capital, is hosting 83 landscapes features in the exhibit by artists such as Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, and Asher B. Durand. The show will remain open until July 2019.
NYT refers to the Albany Institute exhibit as an “opening act for a much-anticipated exhibit” coming up in January 2018 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art entitled “Thomas Cole’s Journey: Atlantic Crossings.” Find out more about that here on the Met’s website.
