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.

Latest Product Reviews

Masterpiece is absolutely fantastically prepared canvas! The surface is smoother than Fredricks Red Label, but not quite as smooth as their Blue label...right in between for a surface that can be used for detailed work effectively! The canvas support is incredible!They are very well made, and perfectly aligned, supported, and taut...just the way I like it! Big thumbs up for this brand of canvas!

This nib makes fine detailed coloring so much easier! Switching from the chisel tip to this nib was simple too.
- Tammy in Illinois
So far, I have purchased over 18 Lbs of Sculptamold. Since I am creating mountains and mountain scenes, this product is fantastic because of the texturing and its slow drying that allows time to be creative.
