Exhibition/Terra Collection Initiative: Continental Shift: Nineteenth Century American and Australian Landscape Painting
From the collection of the Terra Collection for American Art, fifteen landscapes by American artists are exhibited with landscape works from the collection of the Art Gallery of Western Australia. This exhibition examines major themes that informed landscape representation during the long nineteenth century, enabling cross-cultural comparative study.

The exhibition is on view at Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth, Australia, July 30, 2016–February 5, 2017 and Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne, Australia, March 14–June 11, 2017 (as Not as the Songs of other Lands: Nineteenth Century Australian and American Landscape Painting).
