This landmark book, the first major study of one of America's eminent Impressionists, examines the life and work of Theodore Clement Steele (1847-1926). Born in a "little log house in an orchard" near Gosport, Indiana, T. C. Steele had a lifelong love affair with the Indiana landscape, but the timeless universality of his picture-making provides his depictions of the midwestern landscape and cityscape with a welcoming familiarity that appeals to all lovers of art and nature.
The thirty-eight color paintings selected for this volume, many of which have never been reproduced before, celebrate not only the beauties of Indiana but those Steele observed in his travels to Germany and the Pacific Northwest. The superb color reproductions, which capture the subtle interaction of form, color, and light in Steele's poetic and masterfully executed images reveal the universality and "beauty, harmony and order" that have earned his art renewed critical attention in recent years.
