"In the early years of the 19th century, the fledgling American nation was seeking a cultural identity apart from Europe
and a style of art that it could call its own. A group of artists found the answer in the beauty and majesty of the natural
world they encountered in the Hudson River Valley and created magnificent landscape paintings. This movement, the
first in American art, became known as the Hudson River School"                                          --

Join us on the luxury motorcoach, equipped with lavatory and microphone, as we travel to the Catskills to explore key sites in American art history. 

We will tour Cedar Grove, the home of Thomas Cole (1801–1848), regarded as the founder of the Hudson River School style of landscape painting. Crossing the Hudson, we will visit the architecturally captivating Olana, home of the painter Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900).

After lunch at Olana, we will head back across the Hudson to Kaaterskill Clove and Kaaterskill Falls, one of the places most painted by the Hudson River School artists.
