About this title


Traces the history of the Hudson River School of American painters, shows works by Church, Cole, and Inness, and describes the background of each painting

From Library Journal:

The excellent catalog of the exhibition organized by the Metropolitan Museum. The well-written essays, by Met curators, chart the 19th-century rise and fall of the first native school of landscape painting. The catalog includes most of the well-known and many lesser-known Hudson River pictures, discussed in depth for both specialists and generalists. The book is well-organized and well-indexed, and, while not breaking great new ground, is highly recommended. The plates are generally good. Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Libs.
