George Inness N.A.,attributed, New York, New Jersey, 1825-1894. This golden glowing American Impressionist painting, "Landscape in Monclair, NJ " by Inness is 18" by 24" in a French style frame. It is signed G. Inness lower right. It is in good condition with evidence of small craquelure which has been restored and has been relined. Inness is considered to be one of the important Impressionist Painters in the Hudson River School. His paintings sell for up to $2 million. Inness is listed in Boswell, Dawdy, Fieldings, Hughes, Mallett, Samuels, and Who was Who in American Art. As with any artist worthy of the title, George Inness is not easily summed up. Often associated with the Hudson River School, he was, in fact, aesthetically in opposition to the large, detailed canvases which characterized the work of such painters as Thomas Cole (1801-1848) and Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900), two major representative painters of that group. Others see him as a transplanted member of the French Barbizon School, more in tune with their less grandiose, more intimate landscapes of homely, domesticated scenes of rural France. Still others as the title of this exhibition* indicates see him as a visionary theorist, painting dreamy landscapes fraught with symbolic messages and meanings. And, like any artist, these and many other attempts at pigeonholing might well fit part of the man and his work.
