I recognized these painters from the huge tome on American Tonalism I mentioned in a previous post. They are interesting to read even after wading through the rather ethnocentric proclamations, not to mention the gender bias.
The first is The Art of Lanscape Painting in Oil Colour by Sir Alfred East
and the second is Landscape Painting by Birge Harrison.
I haven't read through them completely but I thought they would be good inspiration before heading out this week.
I will be back soon!
