Direct from nature : the oil sketches of Thomas Hill by Janice Tolhurst Driesbach( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to draw attention to the remarkable oil sketches of famed landscape artist, Thomas Hill. These smaller pieces, painted in the field directly from nature, represent some of Hill's finest work and include subjects as diverse as Yosemite, the White Mountains, and Alaska. An essay by Janice T. Driesbach details Hill's production of the oil sketches while providing much new valuable information about his life. Driesbach shows how some of the sketches were used as the basis for larger paintings; others re fully-realized works of art in their own right. She contends that Hill, through his small works, helped define an aesthetic for depicting California and broader American landscapes. William H. Gerdts writes about the role that oil sketches played in nineteenth-century American painting. Citing the work of Asher Durand, Thomas Cole, Winslow Homer, Albert Bierstadt, and others, he describes the growth of the legitimacy of the medium. The essays are illustrated with over 90 reproductions (most in full color) of paintings by Thomas Hill and other landscape artists. A chronology of the artist's life and an index have also been added. With its thorough coverage of the subject and key new biographical information about Thomas Hill, Direct from Nature is a landmark work. It is sure to appeal to a wide audience including art historians, students of California history, and lovers of Western landscape art. -- from back cover
