This is a comprehensive scholarly investigation and sensitive appreciation of Gifford, one of the paramount nineteenth-century American landscape painters, by the foremost authority on that artist. A multitude of original documents, many hitherto unpublished, illuminate Gifford's milieu, his life, and his art. The author takes a multi-faceted, cumulative approach to an understanding of Gifford's achievement, including an examination of the terms 'luminism' and 'aerial-luminism'; an investigation of the philosophical concepts, ideals, and attitudes share by the artist's associates; a full-scale biography; and a chronological analysis of Gifford's oeuvre. Gifford's paintings are profusely illustrated in color and black and white, many for the first time.
