Description

Lloyd Dewitt

During his first trip back to England after becoming a well-known American artist, Thomas Cole spent two years in London studying the old master paintings at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, the National Gallery of Art and the British Museum. He wrote home to his parents, “I think I shall improve very fast here, having the advantage of seeing so many fine pictures.” In particular he was mesmerized by the works of Claude, Cuyp, Poussin, Rosa, and Ruisdael, among others. Join Dr. Lloyd DeWitt, Chief Curator and Irene Leache Curator of European Art at the Chrysler Museum of Art, as he explores the transformational influence of 17th century Dutch landscape painting on Cole and other Hudson River School artists.
