From the Declaration of Independence until the Centennial Exhibition in 1876, Philadelphia was an important site for landscape painting traditions that ultimately shaped the better-known Hudson River School movement. Dive into the major themes and arguments of PAFA’s groundbreaking landscape exhibition with Curator of Historical American Art, Dr. Anna O. Marley, Chief Curator and Deputy Director of the National Gallery of Art, Dr. Franklin Kelly, and Curator of American Art at the James A. Michener Art Museum Dr. Laura Turner Igoe, to discover how Philadelphia landscape painters helped shape our national consciousness. Catalogs available for purchase and signing immediately following event.
