In 19th-century America the landscape oil sketch emerged as a finished work of art, worthy of exhibition and sale. Concentrating on such leading landscape painters as Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Cole, The Painted Sketch accompanies an exhibition opening in June 1998 at the Dallas Museum of Art and traveling to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., in October and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts, in February 1999. In this first major book on the subject, Eleanor Jones Harvey offers a fresh interpretation of the smaller, more immediate oil sketch as both a marketing tool for the resulting large studio painting and an artistic genre. With a wealth of color reproductions and archival photographs, she follows the artists on their adventurous travels to sketch grand landscapes. She also charts the public's interest in both the artists' dangerous journeys and the sketches.
