'Painting the American Vision' Guided Tour
Take this free guided tour of the Peabody Essex Museum's exhibit, "Painting the American Vision." In the mid-1800s, a loosely knit group of American painters (now known as the Hudson River School) forged an "American" landscape that regarded the natural world as a resource for spiritual renewal and an expression of cultural and national identity.
Drawn from the celebrated collection of the New York Historical Society, this exhibition features 45 magnificent American landscapes, including Thomas Cole's iconic series of monumental paintings, "The Course of the Empire," as well as works by Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Edwin Church, Jasper Francis Cropsey, and Asher B. Durand.
