B Dan flors
From the Wind River Range to the Canadian border, the northern Rocky MountainWest is an outsized land o stunning dimensions and emotive power. In V
isions o the Big Sky,
Dan Flores revisits the Northern Rockies artistic tradition to explore itsdiversity and richness. In his essays about the artists, photographers, and thematichistorical imagery o the region, he blends art and cultural history with personalreection to assess the ormation o the region’s character.The volume eatures 140 color and black-and-white illustrations, ranging romprehistoric rock art to modernist painting, and rom charismatic wildlie scenes toclassic landscape. They demonstrate the preponderance o Indians and wilderness inthe region’s art and explore the work o individuals as diverse as Edward Sheri Curtisand Ansel Adams. Focusing on those whose art has defned the region, Flores tellshow painters like Maynard Dixon interpreted the Northern Rockies and describesthe contributions o women artists Fra Dana, Evelyn Cameron, and Emily Carr. Afnal essay, “What Was Charlie Russell Trying to Tell Us?” critically examines thelegacy o Montana’s cowboy artist.Conversational in tone and as inormative as they are entertaining, these essaysprovide rich vistas o their own.
Visions o the Big Sky
does or the region’s art what
The Last Best Place
did or its literature.
