On the waterfront

New York is a city haunted by water. Its fluid landscape of bridges, wharves and smokestacks in the first half of the 20th century is the subject of “Industrial Sublime: Modernism and the Transformation of New York’s Rivers, 1900-1940,” at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers through Jan. 17.

The show, which was co-curated by Kirsten M. Jensen and Bartholomew F. Bland – curator and director of curatorial affairs respectively at the Hudson River Museum – explores the link between the Hudson River School of 19th century landscape painting and American Modernism in more than 70 works from museums around the country.

The exhibit and accompanying catalog have been made possible by a grant from the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Inc. The exhibit catalog is supported, in part, by Furthermore: a program of the J.M. Kaplan Fund and is co-published by the Hudson River Museum and Empire State Editions, an imprint of Fordham University Press.
