Frederic Church - Through American Eyes Exhibition, Scottish National Galleries
Frederic Church - Through American Eyes Exhibition, Scottish National Galleries

This exhibition celebrates one of the greatest American painters of the 19th century. Frederic Church (1826-1900) is renowned for his spectacular landscapes, which combine dramatic compositions with beautifully observed light effects. His travels took him to locations as distant as the Arctic Circle, South America and Europe.

The show brings together 25 of his remarkably fresh and spontaneous oil sketches, borrowed from collections in the United States, and juxtaposes these with Church's magnificent and imposingNiagara Falls from the American Side, donated to the Scottish National Gallery in 1887 by an expatriate Scot, John Stewart Kennedy.

This exhibition is organised by The National Gallery, London, in partnership with and through major support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
