Houghton Cranford Smith : the purist landscapes ; [exhibition] March 15-May 12, 2001 by Houghton Cranford Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Paris in 1930, the American painter Houghton Cranford Smith (1887-1983) began studying under Amédée Ozenfant, who along with Le Corbusier had developed a variation on Cubism called Purism. Decisively converted, Smith returned to New York, where he applied this machinelike style to the creation of pastoral landscapes. The pictures in this show, from the mid-30's to the mid-70's, call to mind painters like Grant Wood, Rockwell Kent and Charles Sheeler but have their own muted, slightly comical, slightly melancholyserenity. What you see in Smith's work is less rationalized abstraction than a classicizing and nostalgic idealism. All things, from clumpy or serpentine trees, puffy clouds and bulging hills to blocky little houses and toylike boats, are crisply defined, simply shaded and perfectly composed. Using small but loaded brushes, Smith created surfaces with a texture that could almost be mistaken for that of a coarse weave fabric. A faded image of Le Brusc in southern France looks like part of a Renaissance tapestry. Formalist rigor does not neutralize emotional content. All of Smith's images, whether of foreboding gray mountains in Chile, sunny harbors or rolling hills in New England or gleaming Manhattan skyscrapers, exude an affecting yearning for a never-never land of peace, harmony and tranquility. -- NYT article by Ken Johnson (see link)
