Event description

Description

During the mid-nineteenth century, Frederic Church created monumental and celebrated landscapes of North and South America, the Arctic, and the Middle East. But perhaps his most remarkable achievement was his own home, Olana. In designing his estate, the landscape painter turned to the physical environment, a move that allowed the artist to rethink scale and process while engaging with pressing ecological questions. Drawing from her new book, Frederic Church: The Art and Science of Detail, Jennifer Raab, from the Department of the History of Art at Yale University, will offer a new understanding of this canonical American artist and his home on the Hudson.Twilight tour includes a glass of wine on Olana’s porch.
