Description

This is the untold story of a group of artists whose interest in fostering art in their community made an authentic contribution to the history of art in America. Taking for their subjects the local people, flora, and landscapes, they developed a distinctive impressionistic style, uninfluenced by other art movements in Indiana. Richmond, Indiana, became an important center for art in the Midwest, a place that nourished and inspired the artists whose work this book celebrates.

Reviews

"Shaun Dingwerth has done a yeoman’s job of research and compilation, enhanced with beautiful images of discovered paintings. This ground-breaking project provides a foundation to help unearth even more information, as knowledge and interest grows about these long ignored Indiana artists." —Rachel Berenson Perry, Author of William J. Forsyth: The Life and Work of an Indiana Artist (IUP, 2014) and T. C. Steele and the Society of Western Artists, 1896-1914 (IUP, 2009).

"Any effort to enhance the recognition of Indiana artists is to be commended. And the Richmond Group is underrepresented in print and markets outside its own boundaries. Its time has come." —M. Jeanne Nesbit

"This fine contribution to the better understanding and recording of our art legacy deserves its place in resource libraries public and private." —
Maine Antique Digest

"This ample book contains fine reproductions of the work of these artists. Thumbing through this collection of serenely luminous landscapes is like pausing to meditate—good for the mind and the soul." —Bloom Magazine
