Re/Framing the View: Nineteenth-Century American Landscapes, Naomi Slipp, with contributions by Astrid Tvetenstrand, Darienne Turner, Elizabeth James-Perry, and Jennifer Stettler Parsons. New Bedford, MA: New Bedford Whaling Museum, 2022.
Nineteenth-century American artists are well known for their depictions of nature and the outdoors, for their commitment to creating a national “school” of painting, and for their documentation and idealization of scenery ranging from the imagined and pastoral to the dramatic and sublime. Re/Framing the View celebrates nineteenth-century American landscape painting and reflects upon the environment and ecology, gender, and Native presence and absence. This 208-page hardcover exhibition catalogue, published to coincide with the exhibition, includes two essays by Chief Curator Naomi Slipp; additional contributions from Jennifer Stettler Parsons, Associate Curator at the Florence Griswold Museum, Boston University American Studies PhD Candidate Astrid Tvetenstrand, Darienne Turner (Yurok Tribe), Assistant Curator of Indigenous Arts of the Americas at the Baltimore Museum of Art, and contemporary artist Elizabeth James-Perry (Aquinnah- Wampanoag); over one-hundred full-color plates of works from the exhibition; and a bibliography.
