Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art will show 45 masterworks by Hudson River School artists when "The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision" opens May 5 in the temporary galleries where Wonder World is now.

The New-York Historical Society loan was reported here in January, in an interview with director Don Bacigalupi. There will be a $5 admission fee for persons over 18 to "Nature and the American Vision," though admission to the museum is free.

From the news release:

The New-York Historical Society organized the exhibition with works selected from their rich collections of 19th-century American landscape painting. The exhibition was designed to travel while the society’s galleries were closed during renovations, offering an unprecedented opportunity to share works that have rarely traveled. The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision" includes Thomas Cole’s legendary five-part series The Course of Empire and other masterworks by Cole, John F. Kensett, Albert Bierstadt, Jasper F. Cropsey, Asher B. Durand and many others. This exhibition at Crystal Bridges will be the last time these works are on display outside of the New-York Historical Society.

The museum will hold special programs on the exhibit with CBMAA curator Kevin Murphy and N.Y. Historical Society

Linda Ferber, New-York Historical Society senior art historian and curator of the exhibition, and Kevin Murphy, curator of American art at Crystal Bridges, will participate in special programs including a private preview and a lecture for Crystal Bridges members.

Wonder World goes down April 2.
