Asher B. Durand, Trees on a Rocky Hilside, c. 1849
From the Cleveland Museum of Art:
Inspired by the pictures of Thomas Cole, a forty-four- year-old Durand abandoned his career as an engraver and turned to landscape painting. While Cole’s paintings moralize and reflect on the meaning of history, Durand adopted a more straight-forward realism based on his close, intense observation of nature. Tress on a Rocky Hillside is an early example of a true outdoor sketch and reveals how this new practice led to effects that look strikingly different from earlier landscapes. Rocks and trees are cropped in an unusual manner, and light is diffused and scattered, as it really appears in nature. Compared with the grand panoramas of the Hudson River School, Durand’s painting seems refreshingly free from formula or convention.
I think I know where this is!
Eventually something you love is going to be taken away. And then you will fall to the floor crying. And then, however much later, it is finally happening to you: you’re falling to the floor crying thinking, “I am falling to the floor crying,” but there’s an element of the ridiculous to it — you knew it would happen and, even worse, while you’re on the floor crying you look at the place where the wall meets the floor and you realize you didn’t paint it very well.
