Mount Washington: The Crown of New England
Harvard Club of New Hampshire invites you to come to a special tour of this exhibit lead by curator and creator of the exhibit, Andrew Spahr, of the Currier museum.
Mount Washington: The Crown of New England is the first museum exhibition devoted entirely to art featuring the Mount Washington region. The exhibition features major paintings by Hudson River School artists, including Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, Jasper Francis Cropsey, John Frederick Kensett and David Johnson, as well as acclaimed painters such as Winslow Homer and George Inness. Paintings, prints, vintage photographs and illustrated guidebooks from the late 1820s through the 1870s document the artistic and historical context in which New Hampshire’s most iconic scenic landmark became a national and international symbol of the American landscape, a center for scientific study and one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
