George Inness in Italy Bulletin
A canonical figure in American painting, George Inness (1825-1894) is widely admired as the pioneer of the landscape aesthetic known as Tonalism, which is distinguished by soft focus and diaphanous layers of paint. This the first book about the artist's two Italian sojourns (1851-52 and 1870-74) and their formative impact on his work.
Italy - its art and landscape - offered Inness a font of inspiration as he developed his unique artistic vision.
