I was very pleased with the product but I was especially pleased with the customer service.

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.

Latest Product Reviews

I love these! I've been using them by the dozen as journals. I write in black fountain pen, and there's no bleed-through of the ink from one side of the page to the other, and the paper has no trouble with any of the adhesives I've used (tape, Zots, glue) to attach photos and such. Covers are a great weight, and the wire binding seems like it's made for the Ages. I can't draw a stick figure, so I haven't actually used the books for their intended purpose (i.e. sketching), but the paper has a great feel, and, if it'll stand up to liquid ink on both sides, it should work like a dream with other media. I actually joined Mr. Art as a VIP because I was buying so many of these. There aren't too many products anywhere of which I'm this fond.

This lead holder is visually very similar to the MUCH more expensive Rotring 600 2mm lead holder. It is all- metal, and is very nice to work with. The internal lead tube appears to be brass. The finish, however, is delicate. Very easy to scratch. But since this is a professional tool and not jewelry, that doesn't really matter. Especially at this price. I bought a bunch!

I use welbond glue on my mosaics, glass to glass, and when I put water on it after it has been set and is clear, I have found that it will turn white again and come loose. I love the glue but found this not something I want to use for project that get wet like being outside etc. I found that a Silicone glue that is waterproof worked better for my projects.
