New York (February 20, 2018) – For two decades, this annual event has been the most comprehensive exhibition and sale of important nineteenth-century American landscapes. Opening March 9 at Questroyal Fine Art and running through April 7, The Last New World: Important Hudson River School Paintings features over one hundred twenty-five paintings by the nation’s most revered artists whose works are included in virtually every major American museum. Paintings by leaders of the period will be on view, including examples by Albert Bierstadt, Alfred Thompson Bricher, Thomas Cole, Jasper Francis Cropsey, Asher B. Durand, Sanford Robinson Gifford, John Frederick Kensett, Jervis McEntee, William Trost Richards, Francis Augustus Silva, and Worthington Whittredge.

 

Gallery owner Louis Salerno, a proponent of American paintings as undervalued assets against the dizzying contemporary market, finds Hudson River School artwork in particular to have enduring importance for Americans. In Mr. Salerno’s words, “The sense of awe we experience as we view the sublime and the beautiful rouses a dormant patriotism. At a moment when we are experiencing a widening ideological divide, we need this genuine American art that encourages an affection for the homeland, a sentiment critical to the well-being of a union that Lincoln described as ‘the last best hope of earth.’”
