Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The striking landscape of the Pacific Northwest has inspired painters to put brush to canvas ever since the first European explorers sailed into local waters. A continuous, robust, and evolving artistic view of the region is represented in the 140 paintings selected for this beautiful book. Never before gathered in a single place, here are Albert Bierstadt, Sydney Laurence, Emily Carr, Mark Tobey, Kenneth Callahan, and George Tsutakawa, among many others — all taking account of the water, sky, mountains, air, and light of the Pacific Northwest. With a probing introduction by Jonathan Raban, this book amounts to a unique and irresistible painted history.
