INNESS, George
(b. 1825, Newburgh, d. 1894, Bridge of Allan)

Summer Days

Oil on canvas, 103 x 144 cm
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

Inness's oeuvre represents the development of American Romantic landscape painting towards a more Realist style which was inspired more directly by nature. The early Summer Days is still close to the style of Cole and Durand.
