Landscapes of Colorado: Mountains and Plains

By: Daley, Ann Scarlett & Michael Paglia
Price: $85.00

Fresco Fine Art Publications,2006.
Colorado's landscape is so large in scale and magnificent that it's not surprising that 19th-century railroad magnates actually subsidized paintings to advertise its wonders. A century of settlement and growth have not dulled that appeal. This sumptuous pictorial demonstrates that centennial state outdoor scenes continue to attract and challenge contemporary artists. Ann Scarlett Daley, an associate curator the Denver Art Museum's Institute of Western American Art, and art critic Michael Paglia lead readers and viewers on a fascinating tour of the state's artistic landscape legacy. Hardback with dust cover with pictorial painting, 287 pp.
