American Epics: Thomas Hart Benton and Hollywood
June 10, 2016–September 5, 2016

Step into the screen-worthy melodramas, war sagas, and western spectacles captured in the paintings and murals of this quintessential American artist. Early Hollywood, with its new, captivating way of telling stories, gripped the imagination of the young painter, who applied the larger-than-life techniques of moviemaking to depict compelling narratives in paint. American Epics is the first major exhibition on this important twentieth-century painter in more than twenty-five years.

 

Nature and the American Vision
February 26, 2016–May 8, 2016

Nature and the American Vision is a landmark exhibition featuring nearly fifty masterpieces from the New-York Historical Society’s acclaimed collection of landscape paintings, the most revered in the country. In addition to the beauty and historic value of the paintings, the exhibition charts the emergence of the Hudson River School, considered the nation’s first original artistic movement, and includes iconic works by luminaries alongside rarely seen masterpieces.
