'Stephen Hannock is considered one of the top American landscape painters working today. Represented in major international collections and reflecting a Romantic tradition that dates back to the Hudson River School, his majestic works are renowned for their extraordinarily luminous quality - an iridescence that is achieved through his signature technique of sandpaper-polished oil on canvas. The hushed reverie of earth and sky that is captured in these hauntingly evocative paintings echoes the idyllic grandeur of such forebears as J.M.W. Turner, Albert Pinkham Ryder, and Louis Remy Mignot, among other nineteenth-century masters. The Academy Award he shared for his landscapes on the film What Dreams May Come has enabled Hannock -a craftsman in an art all too rare- to reach an even wider audience. Reawakening one of the most significant styles of American painting, Stephen Hannock illuminates in this beautiful compendium the glorious wonder of the landscape around us.' From the dustjacket flap.
