Watercolor Landscape Masters Homer, Wyeth, Moran, Hassam, Dufy, Schmidt-Rotluff Glenn Hirsch

Winslow Homer (1836 – 1910) An American landscape painter and printmaker, best known for his marine subjects. Largely self-taught, Homer began his career working as a commercial illustrator. He also worked extensively in watercolor, creating a fluid and prolific oeuvre, primarily chronicling his working vacations.

Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) Wyeth said that although he was thought of as a realist, he thought of himself as an abstractionist.

Thomas Moran (1837 –1926) American painter and printmaker of the Hudson River School in New York whose work often featured the Rocky Mountains. Art in this style seeks a direct, unmediated connection to Nature as a source of salvation for the soul.

Frederick Childe Hassam (1859 –1935) American Impressionist painter, who, along with Mary Cassatt, was instrumental in promoting Impressionism in America. He produced over 3,000 paintings, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs

Raoul Dufy (1877 – 1953) French Fauvist painter who developed a colorful, decorative style that became fashionable for designs of ceramics and textiles, as well as decorative schemes for public buildings. Dufy's cheerful oils and watercolors depict events of the time period, including yachting scenes, sparkling views of the French Riviera, chic parties, and musical events. Dufy completed one of the largest paintings ever contemplated, a huge and immensely popular ode to electricity, the fresco La Fée Electricité for the 1937 Exposition Internationale in Paris. It is 32 feet high by 204 feet long.

Visitors to the Paris International Exposition of 1937 were shown a hymn to electricity in Dufy's mural, La Fee Electricite. The painting is 200 feet long and 33 feet high.

Karl Schmidt-Rottluff (1884 – 1976) German expressionist painter and printmaker interested in "primitive" art, and the expression of extreme emotion through high-keyed color
