Book DescriptionThis beautiful book presents the 70 small-scale landscape oil sketches of the unique collection of John and Charlotte Gere. The paintings, created by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European artists working outdoors, were completed quickly so as to capture the fleeting play of light in nature. Rarely exhibited but used instead for consultation in the studio, these pictures offer revealing documentation of artists at work.
