Crystal Bridges Museum Reveals Painting by Hudson River School Artist Thomas Moran
BENTONVILLE, AR.- At the Northwest Arkansas Council’s annual meeting today, Alice Walton, chairman of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art board of Trustees, revealed Autumn Landscape (1862), a painting by Hudson River School artist Thomas Moran (1837 – 1926), is now in the museum’s permanent collection. Ms. Walton made the announcement as part of a presentation updating the Council on the museum’s progress and economic impact to the region.

Formally owned by the Harvey and Bernice Jones Trust, Autumn Landscape was acquired by Bernice Jones in 1960 at Barack’s Antique Auction for her husband Harvey’s office at Jones Truck Lines in Springdale, Arkansas. It hung in Harvey’s office until the company was sold in 1980 when it was moved to their home and hung in their den until Bernice’s death. “Bernice did not know it was a Moran when she purchased it – she just liked it and thought it would look good in Harvey’s office,” said Joel Carver, president of the Jones Trust Board of Trustees. “Harvey and Bernice wanted the painting to stay in northwest Arkansas where the people of the communities they called home could enjoy it.”

Thomas Moran is best known for his panoramic views of the American West and provided Americans and Europeans their first look at spectacular sites later preserved as national parks. Autumn Landscape, a painting of a Pennsylvania valley, was once thought “lost” and only re-surfaced when acquired by Jones. After a thorough conservation examination and research it was discovered Moran painted Autumn Landscape from drawings made during an 1861 sketching trip to the eastern Pennsylvania valley and was exhibited the following year at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

“What an interesting and wonderful journey Autumn Landscape has taken,” said Walton. “We are thankful to the Jones Trust for the opportunity to include this fine painting in the Crystal Bridges permanent collection."
