George Inness

 

George Inness (1825 - 1894) was a American landscape painter. He was influenced, in turn, by the Old Masters, the Hudson River school, the Barbizon school, and, finally, the theology of Emanuel Swedenborg, whose spiritualism found vivid expression in the work of Inness's maturity. His works consistently earned acclaim for their powerful, coordinated efforts to elicit depth of mood, atmosphere, and emotion.
