SPECTACLE: Frederic Church and the Business of Art

November 19, 2023 – March 31, 2024 (Friday – Sunday, 11 AM -3:30 PM)

Sharp Family Gallery | Olana State Historic Site

Organized by The Olana Partnership

Frederic Church’s The Heart of the Andes was the pinnacle of his critical and popular success as America’s preeminent landscape artist and now holds center stage at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s American Wing. Spectacle: Frederic Church and the Business of Art combines immersive video technology with the wealth of Olana State Historic Site’s archival holdings to demonstrate how Church’s art responded to the most advanced scientific thought of his day and reached a broad public audience, the largest of any 19th-century American artist.

This special exhibition responds to two frequently asked questions by visitors to Olana: How did people experience Frederic Church’s major paintings in the 19th century, and how did the artist Frederic Church make enough money to create Olana?
