Hudson River School Paintings for Sale| American Art Exhibition

The Top 5 Hudson River School Exhibitions

Rocks rich with summer garlands–solemn streams
Skies, where the desert eagle wheels and screams
Spring bloom and autumn blaze of boundless groves.

This excerpt is from William Cullen Bryant’s poem, “To an American Painter Departing for Europe.” The piece was written in 1829 on the occasion of Thomas Cole’s departure to Europe, and reminds us of the warmer months to come. While spring is still a few weeks away, you can catch a glimpse of nature’s wonders at our annual Hudson River School exhibition, Voyeurs in Virgin Territory: The Hudson River School Painters, on view from March 13 through April 11, 2015. In addition to our show at Questroyal, the legacy of the Hudson River School is explored in an array of outstanding shows around the country. Here are our picks for the top 5 Hudson River School exhibitions of the moment.
