The Evolution of a Hudson River Painter into American Modernism, Montclair, NJ


George Inness (1825-1894) began painting with the Hudson River painters and is considered one of America's most celebrated landscape painters and the father of American Modernism. David explores the evolution of Inness's unique painting style, his quest for a union of spirituality with painting, and his reliance on ambiguity. At a reservation near Inness's home in Montclair, New Jersey, which overlooks the Manhattan skyline and Inness's New York studio, David creates a painting using techniques of Inness while discussing his sources of inspiration and his enduring influence in the world of American art.
