The majesty of Earth’s most magnificent features was the domain of Wilson Hurley (1924–2008).
In paintings of natural wonders throughout the galaxy, he was committed to expressing his love of the richness of reality. His journey to become a revered twentieth-century American landscapist is brought to life in this intimate biography.
Written for appreciators, collectors, and working artists, Hurley’s goals and procedures—from thumbnails to plein air field studies and finished studio paintings—are elucidated in depth, including a commission that resulted in five monumental triptychs of our nation’s most prized vistas installed at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
Written by his wife and fellow artist, Rosalyn Roembke Hurley.
