A distinct painting development with regard to the American West's Wasatch Range emerged in the nineteenth century and continues even today. These "painters of the Wasatch" have set many precedents through their artistic interpretations of this mountain subject matter. "Painters of the Wasatch Mountains" presents a survey of those early painters who formed the movement. As natural successor to the Hudson River School in the East, the "Wasatch school" persists because of the values we associate with America's first art movement. The painters of the Wasatch are not defined by a particular style or medium but by a physical presence that has unlimited appeal and inspiration. Over 300 artworks are included, from the earliest examples of painting in the nineteenth century to works by contemporary artists. Also included are brief biographies of each artist, with occasional stylistic analysis.
