Bringing art and people together.
William Mason Brown's River Landscape in Summer and its companion, Summer Pastures (swipe right), celebrate the unspoiled beauty and tranquility of America's mid-nineteenth-century rural landscape -a principal aim of the Hudson River School painters. Thomas Cole set the American fashion for pendant landscape paintings in the 1830s, and the convention was commonplace by mid-century. Many of these works were conceived as allegorical complements. For example, contrasting seasons or times of day might, by extension, reflect contrasting natural or emotional states. Though both of Brown's landscapes depict summer scenes, they may represent differing states of nature: the blasted tree trunk and towering, vine-tangled oaks in River Landscape in Summer may symbolize wildness or "untamed nature," while the fences and placid pastureland of Summer Pastures may signal that nature has been tamed by civilization. #SummerSolstice #ChryslerMuseum #Landscape #AmericanArt • • • William Mason Brown (American, 1828-1898) River Landscape in Summer, 1856 Summer Pastures, ca. 1856 Oil on canvas Museum purchase with funds from the Accessions Fund and Mr. and Mrs. Richard M.

Molten glass is beautiful but did you know it’s also corrosive? After seven years bringing joy to thousands, our furnace must be rebuilt. You can help! There’s less than a week left to show your support for the Perry Glass Studio furnace! Help us reach our goal by Sunday by using the link in our profile. #CMGS #GetFiredUp #ChryslerMuseum

The horses of the Caisson Platoon of the 3d United States Infantry "The Old Guard" have the honor of carrying a comrade for their last ride to Arlington National Cemetery. Six horses pull a flag-draped casket on a black artillery caisson to the final resting place with other honored dead. • Charlotte Dumas photographed the platoon horses in the stables after their work day was over. Her first video project featuring these animal witnesses is on view through June 3.
