". . . apart from the skillfulness and dreaminess of so many of the pictures, the fact that several of them have not been on public display in half a century makes the exhibition even more remarkable. This is New York as you have never seen it before" - Benjamin Genocchio, the New York Times.

A richly illustrated survey of the New-York Historical Society's landscape collection, The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision (2009), accompanies this exhibition.
