Landscape Study” by William Trost Richards (1851; oil on canvas) - Image provided

Opening May 25 at the Hunter Museum of American Art, “In Nature’s Studio: Two Centuries of American Landscape Painting” tells the story of the American landscape as it transformed throughout the early 19th century to the late 20th century.

Ranging from realistic renderings to stylized impressions, “In Nature’s Studio” explores the artistic movements that influenced American artists such as the Hudson River School, impressionism, tonalism and modernism.

More than 65 paintings created over two centuries feature artists including George Bellows, Ralph Albert Blakelock, Frederic Church, Elliot Daingerfield, Arthur Bowen Davies, Childe Hassam, George Inness, Elizabeth Osborne, Andrew Wyeth and N.C. Wyeth, among others.

Organized by the Reading Public Museum in Pennsylvania, “In Nature’s Studio” will be on view at Hunter Museum through Sept. 4.

Southeastern Trust Company is sponsoring the exhibition.
