The White Mountains, nestled serenely in the middle of New Hampshire, have been inspiring visitors for hundreds of years. A favorite subject of painters from the nineteenth century and an often revisited landmark for today's artists, the majestic beauty of the landscape is captured within the pages of Visions in Granite. This carefully selected collection of paintings takes readers on a tour through the historical and contemporary representations of the White Mountains, showcasing work by some of the most prominent landscape artists of the past two centuries. By pairing the paintings of yesterday and today, Visions in Granite reveals the influence that nineteenth-century painters have had on their contemporary counterparts. While some of today's artists chose to continue a dialogue that began with their predecessors, others have pushed their work into new territory by incorporating the ideas of modernism and abstraction. Visions in Granite is a tribute to a region that has arrested the imagination of many and to the artists who have captured that beauty for others to enjoy.
