Artist + Landscape

Tuesdays, 1-3 PM

The modern idea of landscape painting began in northern Europe, and was perfected by Dutch artists during the 1600s. The form represented their prosperous country and their hard-won freedom from Spain. Ever since, landscape painting has expressed ideas related to nature, identity, and spirituality.  Explore these topics in the special exhibitions, Pastures Green and Imaging Eden, and the Museum collection.
