About this title


James A Suydam (1819-1865) was an American landscape painter and art collector who worked during a pivotal time in the country's history. His art and collection provide a fresh perspective on luminism, a landscape aesthetic celebrated for its expressive effects of light and air. This book offers a new look at how the luminist painters of Suydam's circle -- including John F. Kensett, Sanford R. Gifford, and Frederic Ewdwin Church -- advanced American art during the Civil War era. Luminist Horizons explores the art and culture of the period through Suydam's eyes. The book examines how he arrived at his signature coastal views at Newport, Rhode Island and the influences on his artistic choices. Among the most literate artists of his generation, Suydam found inspiration in an array of sources in both American and European art, as well as the works of philosophy, literature and science found in his library. Profoundly influenced by the revolutionary intellectual discourses of his day, Suydam contributed a vital chapter to the history of American landscape painting.
