  • Published on the occasion of an exhibition held at the Americas Society Art Gallery, New York, April 29-July 26, 2014, guest curated by Georgia de Havenon and Alicia Lubowski-Jahn
  • "Unity of Nature focuses on Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), the Prussian scientist, explorer, diplomat, and author, who during his lifetime was renowned for his exploration of the Americas. The exhibition examines how Humboldt's scientific ideas about nature related to aesthetics and imagery, as well as how they were interpreted by landscape artists from the nineteenth-century. The show will include paintings and drawings by Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900), Louis Remy Mignot (1831-70), Titian Ramsay Peale (1799-1835), and Norton Bush (1834-94), as well as a selection of European artists, such as Ferdinand Bellerman (1814-89), Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-58), Albert Berg (1820-73), Anton Goering (1836-1905), Eduard Ender (1822-83), and the Victorian woman traveler Adela Breton (1849-1923). Also included in the exhibition are two works by artist Mark Dion (b. 1961) who offers a contemporary response to Humboldt's classification of nature"--Americas Society Website, viewed May 23, 2014
