Still Time To Catch The Perfect Wave: Trost at the Academy
There is still time to catch the exhibition William Trost Richards: Visions of Land and Sea at the National Academy, New York City – closing September 8. Trost, trained in his native Philadelphia, was influenced by the landscape artists Frederic Edwin Church and Thomas Cole. He worked in several medium, including: oil, watercolor, and pencil; all of which are represented in the show of more than 60 works spanning the artist’s career. Trost was a wanderer looking for the perfect sea and landscape to capture and searched throughout America and Europe. He settled across from Newport Rhode Island but traveled extensively in the United Kingdom. William Trost Richards is regarded today as one of our finest landscape and marine painters of the 19th century and it is forty years ago that the Brooklyn Museum of Art solidified the artist fame and reputation with a major exhibit of his work.
