Course Detail: OSH-HUDSON - Art of the Hudson River School

Based primarily on works from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Virginia Museum of Fine Art collections, this interactive session will explore how American landscape painting came to prominence in the mid-19th Century. The Hudson River School was not an actual school, but America's first true artistic fraternity, reflecting the themes of discovery, exploration, and settlement, and characterized by a realistic, detailed, and sometimes idealized portrayal of nature.
