This lavish book, the fifth in the New Mexico Artist Series, presents more than fifty painters of the New Mexico landscape whose styles run the gamut from impeccable realism to interpretive abstraction. The unifying theme is the light on the land, and the abiding message is that there are unlimited ways to observe and appreciate it.
The history of landscape painting in New Mexico comes vividly to life in this book, as does a sure feel for the current art scene. The color reproduction is, as always, outstanding. Profiles of the great names in the field, as well as some very interesting discoveries among emerging artists, provide the reader with an exciting overview of this popular subject.
