Thomas Cole, The Voyage of Life: Childhood, 1839-40, oil on canvas. Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, Utica, NY, 55.105

Discover a landmark of American art by Thomas Cole, a leader of the Hudson River School. Cole’s allegorical paintings,
The Voyage of Life (1839–40), depict the course of a man’s life as a river journey through four magical landscapes.
Cole’s masterpiece, which rarely travels, will be accompanied by forty-one American landscape paintings and works on paper from the permanent collections of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, New York. The exhibition, which includes works by Asher B. Durand, Frederic E. Church, Jasper F. Cropsey, and George Inness, demonstrates in dramatic visual terms the influence and cultural significance of Cole’s work.

Contemplate the power of the individual on display in Memling, the latest series by Kehinde Wiley, an American artist whose work is widely exhibited nationally and abroad. The exhibition features eight paintings by Wiley based on the work of Hans Memling (1430–1494), a Flemish master of the Northern Renaissance. Wiley’s paintings reinterpret Memling’s works, replacing the austere 15th-century figures with the bold, engaging subjects of men in contemporary street clothes. These small-scale, highly detailed portraits address the image and status of young men of color.
