Short Description

During a fifty-year period, an artistic movement developed in America that was based on Romanticism and inspired by the wild areas in the vicinity of New York’s Hudson River. The first native American school of landscape painting included artists Thomas Cole, Asher Brown Durand, and Thomas Doughty as well as Frederic Church, Thomas Moran, and Albert Bierstadt. While most of these artists did not think of themselves as belonging to a movement, they did share a sense of wonder at the grandeur of the New World’s remarkable scenic wilderness. In the American Artist series, you’ll read about more masters of the art world who not only depicted American life and landscape through beautiful works but also broadened our perspectives by employing the tools of their trade with the highest levels of creativity and insight. Experience firsthand these artists’ vision and influence through the seventy or more spectacular, full-color reproductions of their work. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Educational Videos are offered in the back through the use of QR codes, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a video relating to the book topic. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text.
