George Inness and the visionary landscape by Adrienne Baxter Bell( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Inness and the Visionary Landscape includes forty color reproductions of Inness's most important paintings and presents both a chronological overview of Inness's life and a more focused treatment of the artist's main philosophical and religious preoccupations. Central to his thinking were the writings of the Swedish scientist-turned-visionary Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), who influenced many of Inness's contemporaries, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Walt Whitman. George Inness also suggests resonances between the artist's visionary landscapes and the concurrent efforts, on the part of the psychologist-philosopher William James (1842-1910), to validate the existence of mystical states of mind. It shows Inness to have anticipated many of the most important tenets of modernism, an achievement that continues to inspire contemporary audiences."--Jacket

George Inness and the visionary landscape by Adrienne Baxter Bell( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This eloquent examination of Innes's most important paintings illuminates the artist's philosophical and religious preoccupations. It provides an overview of his life and situates Inness within the contexts of key issues in American history, such as the Hudson River School, Transcendentalism, Swedenborgianism, and the work of William James. It explains for the first time how Inness treated landscape painting as a form of philosophical inquiry that could communicate his holistic belief in the unity of nature and spirit. Adrienne Baxter Bell is an Associate Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College, New York. She wrote a new preface for the second edition
