Exhibition/Terra Collection Initiative: Picturing the Americas: Landscape Painting from Tierra del Fuego to the Arctic

Picturing the Americas: Landscape Painting from Tierra del Fuego to the Arctic is an unprecedented exploration of landscape painting across the Americas. Spanning the early nineteenth to the early twentieth century and featuring works from across two continents, Picturing the Americas reveals how landscapes communicate aspirations, nationhood, and cultural identity, highlighting shared histories and investigating regional differences in relationship to the land (read the full press release). A Terra Collection Initiative, Picturing the Americas is co-organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto, Canada), the Pinacoteca de São Paulo (São Paulo, Brazil) and the Terra Foundation for American Art.

The exhibition features six works from the Terra Foundation collection:

Picturing the Americas is accompanied by a responsive website (www.picturingtheamericas.org) that thoughtfully recreates the exhibition online, showcasing more than 90 paintings—which users can contextualize by theme, chronology, and geography—with texts available in four languages (English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish).

This exhibition is also on view at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, Canada (June 20–September 20, 2015), and Pinacoteca de São Paulo, Brazil, (February 27–May 29, 2016).
