VG-(binding has scuffs along outer spine; no dj.; overall only slight aging seen. ) Blue cloth, 228 pp. 142 bw repros. The author outlines his mission on the opening page: "The interest in our earlier landscape painters has grown steadily. Numerous forgotten painters have been rediscovered, and a whole stratum of art--the work of the primitives--has been collected and appreciated for the first time in the last twenty years. For these reasons it appears timely to discuss the material as far as it is now available, and to interpret it historically. This book will serve such a purpose without attempting to be complete. I have tried rather to select significant examples of the trends determining the evolution. Since these trends derive from European sources, the history of European landscape painting is outlined at the beginning of the book. This outline is presented with an eye to the subsequent development in America." Chapter titles include: The European Heritage; Sentiment of Nature; The Panoramic Style; With Fresh Eyes; Painters of Tone and Light; Toward a Technocratic Landscape; In Conclusion; Notes; Index.
