Citizens located in the charming city of Milwaukee are in for a splendid treat this February! In the Mid-19th century there was a delightful art movement that consisted of a group of Landscape Artists given a natural gift. Those treasures were lovely romantically painted views of the Americas in her younger years. These brilliant artists created breathtaking Landscape Paintings that pulled the viewer into a visually poetic representation of nature’s beautiful face. Looking deep into her eyes, these artists found their inspiration and worked meticulously to share with the world what they saw, felt, experienced...
The Milwaukee Art Museum will be giving the midwest a chance to experience a collection generously lent from The New York Historical Society. The city of Milwaukee will host the Nature and the American Vision: The Hudson River School exhibition from February 26th until May 8th, 2016.
The Exhibit is thematically arranged by place. It has been curated to give visitors a sense of taking a tour across the early Americas. Viewers will get lost in these grand, immersive works of art as they are invited to contemplate earlier days, earlier communities, and earlier national unities. The founder of the Hudson River School, Thomas Cole will have 5 major pieces that act as a focal point and set the tone for the entire collection within this 2d turned 3d wonderland. Works from one of Cole's predecessor’s, Albert Bierstadt will also be present, evoking hearts to be moved by dramatic presentation of rivers framed by mountainous enclosures. The 45 showpieces also hold works from peripheral creative advocates of the time, with an equal quality of enchantment.
The Landscape artists in this show made the world community of their time aware of this awe-inspiring nation on the rise and the magics that lay hidden in her nature. Come see how they warmed the hearts of their generations and be filled with joy that you, the posterity, too get to partake in this glorious event.
