FIRE & ICE PHOTOGRAPHIC COLLECTION

Treasures From the Photographic Collection of Frederic Church at Olana: Fire & Ice

In Fire and Ice, images from Church's collection are shown along with a selection of his own oil sketches, drawings, and archival materials. Some of the photographs are devoted to the varied geographical interests reflected in Church's art and travels: Central and South America, the Middle East, and the polar North. Others served as visual reference for the design and construction of Olana. Lavishly illustrated, Fire & Ice shows how the photographs in Church's collection echoed the principal stages of the painter's career.
