The Hudson River School and the Tonalist Movement are two great periods in American landscape painting. Beyond the examples of their paintings, we are fortunate to have what are considered to be each movements textbooks: Asher B. Durand's, Letters on Landscape Painting (1855) and Birge Harrison's Landscape Painting (1910). Now, for the first time, both books are available in one volume. December 3, 2016
Once a classic drawing instruction manual that was used to teach countless children and young adults how to draw, Drawing Made Easy by E. G. Lutz is now back in print after many years absence. Hallmarks of his approach are simplifying complex shapes as well as working from big to small. These concepts are simple enough for children to understand and yet the same principles are evident in many Old Master drawings. December 3, 2016
