George Inness (1825-1894) was a pivotal force in 19th-century landscape painting, first for his blending of Hudson River School and European styles and later for his poetic impressionism. Acclaimed during his lifetime, Inness' work fell victim to changing 20th-century taste, as did the French Barbizon School. Now both are becoming greatly valued again.
