Frederic Church

The National Gallery's Terra-backed exhibition Through American Eyes: Frederic Church and the Landscape Oil Sketch, which runs from 6 February to 28 April, will include one of Church's monumental canvases Niagara Falls from the American Side (1867) in addition to 25 of his oil sketches. This painting was bought in 1887 by John S. Kennedy, who presented it to his native Scotland. It is the only major example of Church's art in a European public collection. It will be on loan from the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh, where the exhibition will go after its London showing. Church was a leading light in the Hudson River School of landscape artists. Entry to his National Gallery show is free (CLICK).
