Coles The Course of Empire: Destruction
  • Cole's "The Course of Empire: Destruction"

A New-York Historical Society exhibit on tour brings 45 Hudson River School paintings to Crystal Bridges Museum of Art starting Saturday, May 5. The paintings compliment CBMAA's own strong 19th century collection, the highlight of which is Asher Durand's "Kindred Spirits." The Durand was purchased by museum founder Alice Walton from the New York Public Library.

"The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision" includes works by all five paintings in Thomas Cole's allegorical series "The Course of Empire," as well as works by Albert Bierstadt, Frederick Church, Jasper Cropsey, Durand, Martin Johnson Heade and John Frederick Kensett.

The exhibit runs through Sept. 4. Reserved, timed tickets are required. They are $5 for non-members and free to members. Click here to reserve.
