Product Description

Written by James Anthony Ryan with an introduction by Franklin Kelly.

The landscape, farm, house and collections that comprise Olana are a work of art conceived and executed by the preeminent mid-19th-century American landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church (1826 1900). Considered one of the most perfectly realized visions of harmony between people and their natural surroundings, Olana is a landmark of Picturesque landscape gardening with a Persian-inspired house at its summit embracing unrivaled panoramic views of the Hudson Valley. A rare American confluence of art and farming, aesthetics and conservation, landscape painting and landscape design, Olana represents a masterpiece of human creative genius. Paperback, 104 pages.
