Lecture: ‘Idylls of the Imagination: American Landscape Painting and the Shape of Memory

When: Sat., Feb. 22, 2-3 p.m. 2020

Author Raymond Frizwell traces the history of landscape painting as it slowly evolved in the United States—arising first as a decorative art, to then become the central defining element in our growing sense of national identity. Touching on the Hudson River School to the Modern era, Frizwell charts the changes in perceptions of landscape painting, the influence of historical events, and how landscape paintings ultimately came to influence our national consciousness. This program supports the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibit, Water/Ways.
