Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2018. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

Jennifer Raab looks at 19th-century American landscape painters like Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, and Albert Bierstadt to consider how artists of that era represented progress and used the physical environment to express hope and doubt, past and future, and the local and the global. Raab will cover themes such as the relationship between art and science, the settlement of the West, modes of exhibition and display, and tourism and ecology.

Led by: Jennifer Raab, Professor in the History of Art, Yale University
