Oh Panama!: Jonas Lie Paints the Panama Canal, is a 2016 exhibit organized by the Hudson River Museum and the Michener Art Museum. MAM says: "The Norwegian-born painter Jonas Lie (1880-1940) was drawn early in his career to architectural subjects, and earned his reputation through his powerful renderings of New York and its icons of technological progress, such as the Brooklyn Bridge, the new skyscrapers, and the urban canyons they created. Inspired by an early color film documenting the construction of the canal, Lie was enthralled by the feats of engineering and the sublime visual qualities of the massive trench being carved across the Isthmus of Panama. He visited the Canal Zone for three months in 1913. Oh Panama! presents his dramatic vision of the canal's construction in eleven paintings on loan from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, as well as oil sketches, lithographs, and ephemera -- all will impress viewers as a sublime and beautiful documentation of man's relentless quest to conquer nature and harness its riches."
