This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in association with the University of Washington Press in conjunction with its exhibition This Tranquil Land: Hudson River Paintings from the Hersen Collection (January 22–April 16, 2000).
This exhibition from the collection of Michel and Victoria J. Hersen comprises of paintings, drawings, and watercolors by 19th century artists who painted in and around the Hudson River area. The Hudson River School paintings symbolize a philosophical ideal that transcends the pictorial and places humanity in context within the immensity of nature. The current collection includes a mix of major artists, those with moderate reputations and others with considerable talent.
This publication includes an introduction by Richard V. West, a Collector’s statement by Michel and Victoria J. Hersen, an essay by William Kloss, an About the Author section, and a collection checklist along with full color illustrations of the exhibition artworks.
