‘Connecticut Water, Hills And Sky’ At NBMAA

Every town in Connecticut needs someone like Nelson Augustus Moore.

Moore (1824-1902) called the Kensington section of Berlin his home, and spent his life painting it, idyllic scenes of natural beauty that serve as a reminder of the pristine past of a now-developed place.

Moore, who studied under Asher Brown Durand of the Hudson River School, is the focus of a new exhibit at New Britain Museum of American Art, which features 12 landscapes by Moore. It is the museum’s first exhibit of works by Moore in almost 20 years.
