"Working Farms and Scenic Views: The Tradition of the Estate as Landscape in Maryland, 1770-1820"

In the mid-eighteenth century as Americans sought both to tame the land and celebrate its unspoiled state, landscape painting provided a framework for understanding this paradoxical relationship with nature. Images of rural estates, featuring large, elegant homes nestled in vast, picturesque landscapes, presented a means to illustrate an idealized balance between cultivation and the rugged landscape.

Jenny Carson, department chair of art history, theory and criticism at the Maryland Institute College of Art, will trace Maryland's early tradition of estate portraiture, from the Colonial period through the early nineteenth century.
