Greatly influenced by Japanese art, he expounds a theory of "flat" formal equilibrium as an essential component of telling pictorial creation. Generations of teachers and their pupils in the public schools learned from Dow's orientalism and adopted basic post-impressionist principles without even knowing the term. The reappearance of Dow's practical, well-illustrated guide to artistic composition, enhanced by Joseph Masheck's discussion of its historical ramifications, is an important event for all concerned with the visual arts and the intellectual antecedents of American modernism."@en ;
