Painting Indiana III, Painting Indiana

“A visual testament to the quiet, past-haunted beauty of the Indiana environment, both natural and man-made.” —Bloom

The work of T. C. Steele, William Forsyth, J. Ottis Adams, Otto Stark, and Richard Gruelle, known collectively as the Hoosier Group, established plein air (“in the open air”) painting as a major art form in Indiana. The vitality of this style is represented in Painting Indiana III: Heritage of Place, which includes one hundred juried works by current Indiana plein air artists, along with paintings by the Hoosier Group, all featuring notable Indiana landmarks. This richly illustrated book will delight Hoosiers and art lovers around the world.
