Study Session: Nature Observed: Frederic Edwin Church

January 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-5

An intimate look at the breathtaking sketches of Frederic Edwin Church (American, 1826-1900) at Cooper Hewitt. The premier artist of the Hudson River School, Church traveled widely in pursuit of close observation of the natural world and produced a remarkable body of working drawings. Together we will explore Church’s approach to documenting the majesty of nature, from icebergs in the Arctic to tropical flora in Jamaica.

With Caitlin Condell, Associate Curator & Head, Drawings, Prints & Graphic Design, Cooper Hewitt
And Casey Monroe, Senior Research Cataloguer, Frederic Edwin Church, Cooper Hewitt

This event is organized by The Drawing Foundation in association with Master Drawings New York 2024.
