Four museum exhibitions will be closing on May 19th, 2013. The first is The Panoramic River: the Hudson and the Thames at the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY which focuses on British late 18th century large-scale panorama. The Hudson River Museum's exhibition explores the panoramic vista as the ideal expression for a new, all-embracing way of seeing the landscape that influenced how the public and artists perceived it as well. Artists in the exhibition consist of Thomas Cole, Jasper Cropsey, Robert Havell Jr, and John Kensett. Also, Piero della Francesca in America is currently running at The Frick Collection, NY. NY. Revered in his own time as a "monarch" of painting, Piero della Francesca is acknowledged today as a founding figure of the Italian Renaissance. The Frick Collection is presenting the first monographic exhibition in the United States on the artist, bringing together seven works, including six panels from the Sant'Agostino altarpiece - the largest number from this masterwork ever reassembled for display. Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London is taking place at the Seattle Art Museum in Seattle, WA. A landmark exhibition of 17th- and 18th-century European art from London makes its only stop on the West Coast. The 48 traveling works that make up this important exhibition were collected by Edward Cecil Guinness (1847-1927), the first Earl of Iveagh and heir to the Guinness Brewery. Many of the displayed works had never left Europe before, including Rembrandt's late "Portrait of the Artist."
