New World Visions: American Art and The Metropolitan Museum (1650-1914)

from 24.95

New World Visions is a two-part program that interweaves American painting, sculpture, decorative arts and architecture. Written and hosted by Vincent Scully, using the collections of the Museum’s previous American Wing as a point of departure, the program was also filmed on location throughout New England, and in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.

Part I begins in the seventeenth-century Hart Room of the American Wing, continues through colonial times, and ends with the emergence of the Hudson River School around 1820. Part II explores nineteenth-century landscape and portrait painting in depth, ending with the Frank Lloyd Wright Room at the Museum.
