This past weekend I had the privilege of going to New York with some of the art students from Thomas More. While I was there I visited numerous museums and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art I was able to see in person some of the paintings we talked about in class. Specifically the ones of Frederic Edwin Church, Thomas Cole, and other Hudson River School artists. Looking at these paintings even on a computer screen, they communicate a sublime feeling but seeing them in person is even more effective.
