American Modernism



Grant Wood, Spring in the Country, 1941.
James Everett Stuart, Mount Hood, 1916.
Rockwell Kent, Mt Assiniboine, 1952.

Muscular in design, and daring in color. These works of American modernism, can teach a lot about the value of simplifying what you see before you in the landscape, to paint the timeless spirit of a place rather than merely its specific physical appearance.
