Lyceum: Disentangling Art: How the Adirondacks Changed Landscape Painting

February 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Disentangling Art: How the Adirondacks
Changed Landscape Painting

This lecture presents dual perspectives. Katherine Manthorne analyzes paintings of the Adirondack wilderness to show how this distinctive regional terrain pushed the Hudson River School Artists – female and male – to develop new pictorial strategies. James McElhinney unpacks an alternate backstory to how the Adirondacks shaped American landscape art.


Katherine Manthorne’s work focuses on 19th century landscape art and cultural exchanges across the Americas, and particularly on the experiences of women artists.

James Lancel McElhinney is an artist and the author of the book Sketchbook Traveler: Hudson River, a field-guide to mindful travel published in November 2020. His work explores the convergence of history, art and environmentalism.

The Winter 2021 Lyceum lectures will be presented via Zoom. You can access them through your computer, smartphone, or by dialing in on a regular phone (audio only). You must register IN ADVANCE so we can email you the Zoom link. You can register for the entire series or for an individual lecture.
