Arthur and Eileen Newman have garnered a reputation for coming up with a sizeable collection of still life and landscape paintings during the span of two decades. From 1845 to 1880, they have accrued pieces that were particularly inspired by the Hudson River in all of its beauty. During the time, artists were able to fully capture the full emotions of “American” painting and art. The Newmans were able to collect paintings by various talents, such as Thomas Cole, Martin Johnsons Heade, Frederic Edwin Church, and many others.
Now, The Inspiration: “ The Hudson River Portfolio” captures the very same feelings. The showcase is on display courtesy of the New-York Historical and features works by William Guy Wall, who embarked on a personal trip to be captivated by the Hudson River Valley. See eight of his watercolor models and other related pieces at the exhibition.
