A stunning array of over 40 paintings from the New-York Historical Society’s collection by renowned Hudson River School artists, including Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Albert Bierstadt, Jasper Cropsey, John F. Kensett, and William T. Richards, will be on view at the Worcester Art Museum from September 8 through November 25, 2018. Painted between 1818 and 1886, the works illustrate America’s scenic splendor as seen through the eyes of some of the country’s most important painters.

在19世纪的第一个十年间,哈德逊河谷及其周边区域的美丽景色为一群优秀的美国艺术家带来了无尽的灵感,并促成了哈德逊画派的出现。在英国流亡画家Thomas Cole (1801–1848)的影响下,这些画家对自然景观产生了相似的审美观点。哈德逊画派在今天被视为美国的第一次艺术运动。这些充满诗意的风景画不仅描绘了美国的壮丽河山,更传递出人与自然和谐相融的美好愿景。

In the first decade of the 19th century, the expansive landscapes of the Hudson River Valley and adjacent areas, such as the Catskills and the Adirondack Mountains, inspired an elite group of American artists known as the Hudson River School. Coming together under the influence of British émigré painter Thomas Cole (1801–1848), they shared a philosophy and appreciation for the natural landscape. Today their collective works are considered the first uniquely American art movement. In their idyllic depictions of the landscape, these artists conveyed not only the majesty of America, but an image of man living in harmonious balance with nature.
