The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America

The New-York Historical Society holds an important collection of marine paintings and maritime artifacts; a reflection of the fact that the early history and culture of the United States are closely bound to the Atlantic and the eastern seaboard of North America. More than fifty paintings ranging in date from 1750 to 1904 and a medley of maritime artifacts have been selected for The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America, offering audiences a rich trove of maritime works set in a meaningful historical and cultural narrative.

Thomas Birch (1779-1851), Escape of the U.S. Frigate Constitution, 1838, oil on canvas. Bequest of Matilda Wolfe Bruce, 1908.5

Event Details

Richards's career spanned the second half of the nineteenth century and the first five years of the twentieth. During these turbulent yet productive years, he created some of the most important and beautiful paintings in the history of American art. From 1854 through the 1860s, Richards concentrated upon landscapes of Pennsylvania and New York, earning his early reputation as a painter equally adept in the styles of the mainstream Hudson River School and the reformist American Pre-Raphaelites.
