Hartford - Frederic Church: A Painter's Pilgrimage
Posted on: 2018-08-02
What: Frederic Church: A Painter's Pilgrimage
Where: Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, 600 Main Street, Hartford CT, 06103
When: 6/2/2018 - 8/26/2018, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: 11am - 5 m, Saturday & Frederic Church (1826-1900), one of the leading painters of 19th century America and the Hudson River School, created highly detailed large-scale compositions. He also journeyed around the globe to find fresh inspiration for his pictures. This exhibition is centered on a geographical and thematic shift in Church's practice from the late 1860s through the following decade. During this time, he traveled to the Middle East, Italy, and Greece to paint historic sites in Egypt, Syria, Jerusalem, Rome, and Athens. Church captured the beauty of this sacred terrain but also explored his own faith and world views. In Summer 2018, the Wadsworth Atheneum will present Frederic Church: A Painter's Pilgrimage, an important exhibition that showcases his lesser-known body of work and complements his earlier paintings in the museum's collection. As a native of Hartford, CT, Church's early career was shaped by prominent residents such as Elizabeth Hart Jarvis Colt who offered him significant commissions such as The Vale of St. Thomas, Jamaica, in the museum's collection.
