In the mid-19th century, when a group of artists known as the Hudson River School – Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, George Inness, Asher B. Durand, and others – painted the American landscape, it would have been very unusual to meet a woman with her paints, pencils and sketch pad in the woods.
Very unusual, yes, but not impossible, and the Albany Institute of History and Art has just acquired two paintings and a decorative piece by Julie Hart Beers. It is part of a concerted effort to add more artists from the Hudson River School to the museum’s vast collection.
