George Inness

We can't talk about this movement without talking about George Inness. His works, especially his late works, are a poetic response to the landscape. These paintings are not about the land being depicted, these are not plein air works. In many of his late works Inness was working solely in the studio. The landscapes became completely imaginary. Inness is using the landscape as a vehicle to depict man and his relationship to the natural world.
