Event Type This is an author talk and book signing Description In their most original work yet, Bob and Johanna Titus will discuss their new book, The Hudson River Schools of Art and their Ice Age Origins. They examine how the Hudson Valley’s specific and unique ice-age history had an unexpected consequence: the rise of the Hudson River School of Art, the first truly American school of painting, and also the landscape architecture and literature of the same period in the Hudson Valley. They tell in detail how the landscapes which inspired artists such as Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Frederick Edwin Church and Sanford Gifford were sculpted by glaciers and ice age processes, with specific examples and locations, including places readers can visit today. Books will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served. Organization Hosting the Event Mountain Top Arboretum and Mountain Top Historical Society Phone Number 518-589-3903
