The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University is featuring an exhibition of works by 19th century landscape painter, Robert S. Duncanson, from September 5 - December 8, 2012.  Tomorrow/Thursday, September 13th there will also be a curator's lecture at 5:30pm in the Stronach Center followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm in the Gallery.

Duncanson, a Cincinnati based-artist, was part of the Ohio River Valley landscape painters. He followed the model established by the Hudson River School, achieving success and acclaim even with restrictions imposed on him as an African American or "free colored person." More than 20 paintings and drawings from the 1840's to 1870's will be on view.
