Publishers Description: This publication accompanies a major exhibition organized by the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut, and the National Gallery of Australia. It features some fifty American and fifty Australian landscape paintings produced during the period when landscape became the focus for artists in both countries.In both traditions landscapes trace the ever-changing complexities of bringing what is known to the experience of the unknown, exploring the profound relationship that we have with the land on which we live. Many of America's finest landscape painters are represented, including Frederic Church, Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer, and William Merritt Chase. Australian artists include Joseph Lyatt, Augustus Earle, John Glover, Eugene von Guerard, Louis Buvelot, and Arthur Streeton, among others.
