the Hudson River School

Heya everybody,
For your information and pleasure the Johnson is going to be running a small show of paintings by Jasper Francis Cropsey, Frederick Edwin Church, Martin Johnson Heade, William Bradford, William Sonntag, among others April 21-June 17. The Johnson newsletter states "these works exemplify the Hudson River school painters' outlook that God was experienced in the presence of nature, and nowhere better than in the grandeur of America's unspoiled landscape. The luminosity and serenity of these canvasses show these painters' successful synthesis of keen observation of the natural world with their romantic impulse to heighten the emotional impact of the views they depicted." Use your resources (responsibly).
