Seeing America: 18th & 19th Centuries
North Wing

We believe in Hudson Rivers School paintings as historic documents of American land and life, and I want to shift these paintings for you. -Saya Woolfalk

As artist in residence since 2019, artist Saya Woolfalk has immersed herself in the Museum’s American art and natural science collections. With Saya Woolfalk, Tumbling Into Landscape the artist has created an intervention exploring questions of identity and belonging in relationship to the land and multiple histories of the United States. Drawing attention to what is represented—and more often not represented—in these luminous, Eden-like paintings, Tumbling Into Landscape features a new self-portrait by Woolfalk with a selection of the Museum’s Hudson River School paintings, including six recently conserved works on view for the first time in decades.
