“This spring The Blanton Museum is pleased to present American Scenery: Different Views in Hudson River School Painting, featuring 116 paintings from the Hudson River School, a loose collective of artists working in upstate New York from 1825-1875, whose works comprised America’s first native artistic style.”

This special exhibition offers the unique opportunity to experience a remarkable period in American art. The works capture the pioneering spirit of the artists who were captivated and moved by the immense beauty of this country’s landscape.”
