The landscape, farm, house and collections that comprise Olana are a work of art conceived and executed by the preeminent mid-19th-century American landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church (1826 to 1900). Considered one of the most perfectly realized visions of harmony between people and their natural surroundings, Olana is a landmark of Picturesque landscape gardening with a Persian-inspired house at its summit embracing unrivaled panoramic views of the Hudson Valley. A rare American confluence of art and farming, aesthetics and conservation, landscape painting and landscape design, Olana represents a masterpiece of human creative genius.
Features 74 photographs (31 full-color paintings and house interiors) and a foreword by Franklin Kelly, National Gallery of Art.

"The historical and contemporary photographs convey the quiet majesty of the place." -- reviewer "Maine Antique Digest"
"This book will inspire readers to visit Olana. The modern photographs are so achingly vivid that people who have visited Olana will think they are back there. Ryan effectively uses text and photographs to give a sense of Church's thinking process in designing the house." -- reviewer "The Sunday Gazette"
The author, the late James Ryan, was site manager of Olana from 1979 to 1999.
