The Hudson River School: Artistic Pioneers | Watch & Wonder Weekly Highlight
Friday, September 23, 1 PM
For next week’s Watch & Wonder Highlight, we’re thrilled to feature this episode of The Hudson River School. After watching, dive deeper with resources about the romantic vision of this artistic movement on PBS LearningMedia.
In the vicinity of New York’s Hudson River Valley, a group of American painters led by British born artist Thomas Cole forged an artistic vision of the wilderness. This was the first American school of landscape painting. In “Artistic Pioneers,” learn how men with the names of Cole, Durand, Cropsey, Bierstadt, and Church would impress the world with their creative brilliance and wondrous vision. On canvas they would bring to life 19th century America.
