Hudson River Museum Acquires 19th-C. Masterworks of American Art

Hudson River Museum (HRM) has announced the gift of two exquisite paintings: Gloucester, Stage Fort Beach, 1849, by Fitz Henry Lane; and Fruit with Water Glass, ca. 1850–70, by Severin Roesen; both works were generously donated to the HRM’s collection by Shelley and Felice Bergman. These major works of nineteenth-century landscape and still-life painting will augment the Museum’s extensive collection of American paintings, sculptures, works-on-paper, photographs, and decorative arts from the nineteenth century to today. Both paintings represent artists new to the Hudson River Museum’s collection, located in Yonkers, New York.

“We wanted to ensure these gifts would have a home where they would be appreciated and could serve the widest possible audience,” stated the Bergmans. “It mattered to us that the Hudson River Museum is extremely committed to strengthening the community through its educational mission. We are excited that these cherished works by Fitz Henry Lane and Severin Roesen will be used as teaching tools and to spark new conversations for generations to come.” – Hudson River Museum Acquires 19th-Century Masterworks By Fitz Henry Lane and Severin Roesen
