Styles & Periods
Tonalism

Tonalism was a style found in American painting of the late 19th century which often emphasized the atmospheric and ambient conditions of a scene. Related to the development of the observations of light of the Impressionists a few years later, Tonalists, such as George Inness, depicted nature in a soft, subjective manner, apparently removed from the grand statements in landscape of the Hudson River Painters before him. Intimate and delicate tableaus typify his work. Much of James McNeill Whistler's work also typifies the Tonalist style, notably Nocturne in Black and Gold, the Falling Rocket. Pictorial photographers a few decades later adopted the ideals of the Tonalist artists. No longer interested in documentary photography, Alfred Stieglitz pioneered an expressive style of photography that emulated paintings with soft focus, resulting in sentimental prints.

It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.

This frame is too high in price, and not enough sizes.
- Gail in Fresno C
I loved it and was trying to replace it after a fire and water damage to my apartment. Unfortunately, I had a difficult time locating it anywhere on internet and it wasn't at Walmart anymore. Hence, I OVER purchased the "Carolina Pad U create" 22x 28 in. that was flimsy and two of them cracked into pieces in the car during winter.--Ouch The "Wipe-on Wipe Off" Carolina Pad is much much better: a nice size, easy to attach to the wall and likewise easy to remove with simple tape.
