Nineteenth-century landscape paintings from the New-York Historical Society in New York are exhibited in the exhibition The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision at the Amon Carter Museum. Leading figures of the Hudson River School are represented, including Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Asher B. Durand, John Frederick Kensett, Jasper Francis Cropsey, and George Inness, and more. The highlight of the installation is Cole’s monumental series of five canvases, The Course of Empire, which charts the recurring history of an imaginary nation.
