Hudson in London

Earlier this week, on Wednesday, February 6, an exhibition of landscape oil sketches by Frederic Church opened at the National Gallery in London. Entitled Through American Eyes, the exhibition includes thirteen works from the collection at Olana and some from the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City, among them this one: Hudson, New York at Sunset 1867.
