Curator Lydia Viscardi said, “American Pastoral celebrates our countries landscape in all media. Our country has a rich art tradition in the genre of landscape. This includes early American folk art paintings, grand expansive works introducing the public to the fantastic wild western frontier, the Boston impressionist school influenced by France, the WPA murals that introduced our citizens to rural and increasingly industrialized America, and late 20th and 21st century works depicting the United States and its vanishing wild places.”
