This is the untold story of a group of artists whose interest in fostering art in their community made an authentic contribution to the history of art in America. Taking for their subjects the local people, flora, and landscapes, they developed a distinctive impressionistic style, uninfluenced by other art movements in Indiana. Richmond, Indiana, became an important center for art in the Midwest, a place that nourished and inspired the artists whose work this book celebrates.

Shaun Thomas Dingwerth is Executive Director of the Richmond Art Museum. His articles have appeared in national art media including Plein Air Magazine and Fine Art Connoisseur.
