The New York Historical Society showcases more than 100 famous paintings by artists of the Hudson River School together, including Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, John F. Kensett, Jasper F. Cropsey and Albert Bierstadt, in a series of exhibitions drawn from the Society’s extraordinary American art collection. “School”, in this sense, refers to a group of people whose outlook, inspiration, output, or style demonstrates a common thread, rather than a learning institution. This group landscape painters’ aesthetic vision was influenced by largely by romanticism. Their paintings depict the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area, as well as the Catskill Mountains, Adirondack Mountains, and White Mountains of New Hampshire.

    The Cole paintings foreshadows much of what has come to pass. Perhaps we will take heed of his warnings and seek a truce with nature.
