23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By A Classical Painter on April 25, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book, although not great, is a nice book about Henry Ranger. The book is relatively small, 8" x 10", and has only about 60 pages if you exclude index and bibliography. However, it gives a reasonable amount of background about the artist. The book has few pictures, about 20 pictures of Ranger's paintings and a few more of other artists, but they are well reproduced such that you can see the techiques used by Ranger. In conclusion, I am a classical oil painter and I benefit from this book as an artist. One final note, keep in mind that the book is small so are the pictures; most of them are about 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" or smaller.

18 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on August 4, 2000
Format: Paperback
Henry Ward Ranger was one of the most influential leaders of the turn-of-the-century American landscape painting community and considered by most art historians as the dean of American landscape painting. Now for the first time his work has been assembled in a single volume by art historian and scholar Estelle Riback who provides biographical information and commentary on Riback's life and artistry. Beautifully produced with full-color reproductions, Henry Ward Ranger: Modulator Of Harmonious Color is a superb and very welcome addition to all art school, university and public library art history collections.

This small volume has a good cross section of Ranger's work (which can be difficult to locate in person). He is not quite as good an artist as his reputation would suggest but it is interesting to review his body of work. The cover image is probably the best painting in the collection.

My main problem with his work is the lack of solid draughtsmanship, making his painting look weak on occasion. However, if you are a fan you will undoubtedly be grateful for this collection.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although this small book is somewhat attractive, and has made distinctions among some styles and techniques, many of the plates are too small to fully see some of the details referred to by the author. The major weakness of the book is specific written references to works, pieces that aren't in the book!

This book has good reproductions and I like the way the chapters are divided-I really like Ranger's work and this is a good source to learn more about him and his work
