Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

American scenery is a subject that to every American ought to be of surpassing interest… it is his own land: its beauty, its magnificence, its sublimity –all are his; and how undeserving of such a birthright, if he can turn towards it an unobserving eye, an unaffected heart!

– Thomas Cole

Crystal BridgesIn the early part of the nineteenth century a young American nation sought a unique cultural identity. Through literary and cultural movements like that of the Hudson River School that artists and writers looked to nature and the grandeur of the American landscape to define America for the rest of the world. Works of art including those by Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, and Asher Brown Durand as well as works that have captivated the world from Colonial to contemporary times are on view year round at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
