James Eight's watercolors take viewers on a romantic journey through a city of Albany filled with quaint Dutch influences. Since the 1850s, they have been used to reinforce a romantic view of Albany's past. This image was created from a combination of memory, research, and observation. It provides insights into the character of Albany as it expanded into a commercial transportation center. It shows North Pearl Street, where a black woman and child stand in the foreground as reminders of the vital part of African-Americans played in Albany's economy and society.

Road to Olana

Road to Olana
1964.31.40

Walter Launt Palmer, as the son of Albany sculptor Erastus Dow Palmer, studied with master painters in the U.S. and Paris. He painted interior scenes, views of Venice, and landscapes that include his well-known winter scenes. Keeping with the contemporary trends, his style was more fluid and less precise than that of his father's generation. This work depicts the snow-covered carriageway to the estate of renowned painter Frederic Church. Palmer was praised for his ability to portray snow scenes such as this one which required subtle contrasts in the "colors" of the snow.
