Frederic Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage

Published July 16, 2018

Frederic Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage is the first exhibition to bring together Church’s highly detailed compositions of sacred terrain in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. A leading painter of 19th-century America and the Hudson River School, Frederic Church (1826–1900) was born in Hartford, Connecticut and had deep ties to the Wadsworth Atheneum, which maintains significant holdings of his early landscapes. This exhibition explores the artist’s journey to the other side of the world—not only to paint historical and biblical sites, but to also discover his faith and broaden his worldview.
  
Frederic Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage runs from June 2 - August 26, 2018 at the Wadsworth Atheneum 600 Main St, Hartoford, CT 06103
