SEEING NATURE: LANDSCAPE MASTERWORKS FROM THE PAUL G. ALLEN FAMILY COLLECTION by Chiyo Ishikawa, Dawson William Carr, Mary Weaver Chapin, Patricia A. Junker, Catharina Manchanda, Mary Ann Prior, Sue Taylor

The artists in the collection represent a who's who of masters of the landscape tradition. The book opens with a series of masterpieces by Jan Brueghel that serve as a starting point for understanding the historical trajectory of landscape painting, before moving on to 18th-century artists Canaletto and Moran and Impressionists such as Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Monet. Rounding out the survey are works by modern and contemporary visionaries including Max Ernst, Thomas Hart Benton, Edward Hopper, and David Hockney. Thirty-nine paintings in all are featured in book, each accompanied by detailed essays that comprise a full discussion of the formal intellectual development of the landscape form.
