I recently picked up a copy of the new book, Landscape Painting Now and I’m enjoying it a great deal. Especially the landscape paintings of my heroes Wayne Thiebaud, Eric Katz, and David Hockney.
The extensive compendium features 400 illustrations of recent paintings by 80 artists. An extensive essay by Barry Schwabsky, art critic for The Nation, adds interesting historic references.
The book is an ambitious survey which takes a global view of the subject and makes a case for the unprecedented viability of, well, landscape painting now!
