Explore the Art of Edward Lange
————— Interactive Website Now Live Gallery Open Friday–Sunday, 11 AM to 4 PM for Pop-up Exhibition Community Scavenger Hunt Event Now through May 31st
The Art of Edward Lange Projectis a collaborative effort to reexamine the life and art of Edward Lange (1846–1912), a German immigrant and prolific landscape painter who worked in and around Huntington, New York during the 1870s and 1880s. Lange sketched and painted town centers, local businesses, and private residences.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the first phase of the project that provides multiple ways for the public to experience Lange’s artwork and enrich our understanding of late nineteenth-century Long Island.
Tour the database, interactive map, and digital exhibition.
The Art of Edward Lange website brings together, in one place, nearly 100 of Lange’s artworks spread across more than 25 public and private collections. Featuring high-resolution photography and new research, the website is a valuable resource for understanding Long Island’s history and its ever-evolving landscapes.
Step inside an Edward Lange Painting Now through May 31st.
Preservation Long Island, along with the Town of Huntington Historic Partnership, invites the public to retrace Lange’s steps by participating in a “scavenger hunt” and social media challenge to find and photograph the places Edward Lange captured in his artworks across Huntington. Stops will include local museums where several Lange paintings can be viewed in person! Three lucky participants will receive a collection of Long Island-themed prizes!
The Art of Edward Lange project was made possible through generous funding from The Gerry Charitable Trust.
