George Inness and the Visionary Landscape, Hardback Book

George Inness and the Visionary Landscape Hardback


This eloquent examination of Innes's most important paintings illuminates the artist's philosophical and religious preoccupations. It provides an overview of his life and situates Inness within the contexts of key issues in American history, such as the Hudson River School, Transcendentalism, Swedenborgianism, and the work of William James.

It explains for the first time how Inness treated landscape painting as a form of philosophical inquiry that could communicate his holistic belief in the unity of nature and spirit. "Bell's handsomely illustrated, eloquently written, and well-documented text considerably expands previous scholarship...[A] firstrate study.

Highly recommended." Choice
