The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art closes Sunday, June 19, 2011. The exhibit include forty-five nineteenth-century paintings from the New York Historical Society.

From the Amon Carter Website:

Beginning in the 1820s, the American landscape became a significant theme for artists, who traveled up the Hudson River from New York City to sketch the rugged mountains and tranquil valleys along its banks. With the noted landscape painter Thomas Cole as their inspirational leader, these artists gave impetus to the first self-consciously “American” vision for landscape painting, a movement that would become known as the Hudson River School.
