Frederic Church and the Landscape Oil Sketch
Written by Andrew Wilton, Christopher Riopelle and Katherine M. Bourguignon. A key member of the Hudson River School, Frederic Church (1826–1900) rose to fame as the creator of some of America’s most iconic landscape paintings. He also traveled abroad extensively, making trips to Jamaica, South America, Europe, and the Middle East. At home and away, Church made numerous plein air oil sketches of the landscapes he saw, some magnificent, some humble, many of them later subjects for his full-scale paintings. Frederic Church and the Landscape Oil Sketch features some thirty sketches Church executed during his career. Paperback, 71 pages.
