This year’s Boscobel exhibition, The Hudson River Portfolio: A Beginning for the Hudson River School, curated by Executive Director Steven Miller, features 20 historic landscape prints made between 1821 and 1825 that show areas of the Hudson River from north of Troy to New York City.
A gallery talk, An Artistic Journey: The Making of the Hudson River Portfolio, will be presented by Nicole Simpson at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12. Simpson will trace the creation of the portfolio and examine the collaborative relationship between artist, printmaker and publisher.
Simpson is a Ph.D. candidate at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and currently works at the Baltimore Museum of Art where she is cataloguing The George A. Lucas Collection of 15,000 19th-century prints. She previously worked as a print specialist at The New York Public Library and Christie’s and taught the history of printmaking at The Cooper Union.
The Oct. 12 talk is free with paid admission to Boscobel house or grounds. To register in advance for the talk, visit boscobel.org.
