Hudson River Panorama: A Passage through Time


This book, published in 2009 at the time of the Hudson River quadricentennial, is a stunningly beautiful celebration of 400 years of history along the Hudson River. Hudson River Panorama features hundreds of paintings, drawings, photographs, artifacts, and rare archival documents from the Albany Institute of History & Art’s renowned collection. It is organized around four major themes: natural history and environment; transportation; trade, commerce, and industry; and culture and symbol. The book explores the extraordinary influence of the Hudson, which, despite being a relatively small river, has played an oversized role in the narrative of our country. In words and pictures, Hudson River Panorama presents a stimulating and enjoyable look at one of America’s greatest rivers and tells the remarkable story of the people, events, and ideas that have transformed the region, the state, and the nation.
