These iconic works of 19th-century landscape painting are traveling on a national tour for the first time and are circulating to four museums around the country as part of the Historical Society’s traveling exhibitions program Sharing a National Treasure. The Columbia Museum of Art is the only stop in the Southeast.

“The Museum is delighted to bring this extraordinary exhibition to Columbia, giving visitors from around the Southeast the opportunity to see incredibly beautiful works by highly skilled painters of the 19th century,” Karen Brosius, executive director, said. “We are grateful to the New-York Historical Society for sharing this superb American collection for the first time and to the Blanchard Family for their leadership gift to bring this beautiful exhibition to our state and community.”

The presentation in Columbia is made possible by the Blanchard Family.
