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.

Its time has come.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.
