Glorious nature : British landscape painting, 1750-1850 by Katharine Baetjer ; essays by Michael Rosenthal
From Library Journal
A tribute to a century of British artistic vision and innovation, this is an impressive work of scholarly content and visual delights. Considering the relative paucity of British landscapes in American collections, the treasures displayed here, taken from a recent exhibit celebrating the centennial of the Denver Art Museum, are a reminder that "what there is, is choice." These paintings and drawings reveal a change in both the natural landscape and artistic experience and perception. Baetjer has supplied short biographical sketches of the artists along with commentaries on each work, and the essays examine a variety of aspects of the landscape tradition, from public art to personal insight. A fine example of harmony between theme and presentation, this book is recommended for all visual art collections.
