Abstract:

"While many people are familiar with the Hudson River "School" of art, far fewer realize that out of that movement came the American Luminist movement of the mid 19th Century. While some of the Hudson River artists were also luminists, most of their landscapes are not. The Luminists generally painted smaller landscapes than the HRS artists, they are always extremely peaceful scenes, often rather mono-tone in color, and most of all sublime. That is, the solid mountains or hills in the distance faded into the vapor of the atmosphere, which captured the light of the sun or moon, giving the picture a luminist look. This book first gives the qualifications of Luminist painting. Then, it follows many of the artists and describes their focus on capturing the light of Nature in their landscapes. Many - even most - of the greatest Luminists were highly concerned with the Spiritual and trying to show God's Hand in the world through their paintings."--Amazon
