    Drawings of the Hudson River School

    Press Releases ?
    • November 10, 1969: The first major exhibition of drawings by artists of the Hudson River School will be presented at The Brooklyn Museum from November 25 through January 31. Members of the School, which flourished between 1825 and 1875, were the first American artists to take their sketchbooks and color boxes directly into the wilderness where they produced drawings lighter and more spontaneous than paintings done in the studio.

      With the exception of a few precursors, this exhibition covers the span of the Hudson River School from the first generation founders - Thomas Doughty, Thomas Cole, and Asher Durand - through the second generation led by Frederic Church. The drawings are by artists who directly influenced each other. Many were personal friends, some were teacher and student, and others traveled and worked together in Europe and throughout the United States in addition to the Hudson Valley.

      The twenty artists whose work will be on exhibition are: John William Casilear, Frederic Edwin Church, Thomas Cole, Samuel Colman, Jasper Francis Cropsey, Thomas Doughty, William Dunlap, Asher Brown Durand, Sanford Robinson Gifford, George Henry Hall, James McDougal Hart, William Hart, George Harvey, John Henry Hill, David Johnson, John Frederick Kensett, Homer Dodge Martin, William Guy Wall, Robert Walter Weir and (Thomas) Worthington Whittredge.

      An illustrated catalogue with a foreword by Miss Jo Miller, Curator of the Museum’s Prints and Drawings Department will be available.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
