Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0934658099, Hardcover)Artist Charles Louis Heyde first visited Vermont in 1852 searching for inspiration for his speciality - landscape painting. Apparently, he found what he was looking for in the state's spectacular scenery. Four years later he moved permanently to Burlington, Vermont, and for nearly 35 years painted the scenic views popular with visitors and residents of the region. Mount Mansfield, Lake Champlain, the Winooski River and Otter Creek became his signature subjects. The result of extensive research, this book aims to give new insights into Heyde's Vermont years through a biography of the artist, a comparison of his work and philosophy with those of his contemporaries, and a discussion of his materials and painting methods. An illustrated catalogue raisonne follows 28 colour plates of representative paintings of Vermont, neighbouring New York and Massachusetts, and Ottawa, Canada.
