Format: Hardcover
The latest addition to the impressive University of Oklahoma Press 'The Charles M. Russell Series on Art and Photography of the American West', "Visions of the Big Sky: Painting and Photographing the Northern Rocky Mountain West" is a 234-page compendium in which Dan Flores (the A. B. Hammond Professor of History, University of Montana, Missoula) draws upon his years of experience and expertise to showcase the artists and photographers who sought to capture to beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountain West from the Wind River Range to the Canadian border country. From prehistoric rock art, to iconic photographs of Native Americans, to museum quality paintings by the likes of Charlie Russell and his contemporaries, Professor Flores essays are enhanced with 140 color and black/white illustrations. Of special note is the attention paid to female western artists Fra Dana, Evelyn Cameron, and Emily Carr. "Visions Of The Big Sky" is a core addition to academic and community library reference collections, and especially recommended to the attention of non-specialist general readers with an interest in the iconic images of the American West.
