"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
WHen I glanced at this first, I thought it was N.C.Wyeth. The sky and the clouds look a lot like some of his things. Also a little like some of the work of Ivan Bilban.Growing up in the NC Wyeth neck of the woods (outside Philadlephia) his work is very familiar, feels like home. But with this, the size of that cliff made me realize, ooh this isn't anywhere round Philadelphia! Beautiful picture. Is it a watercolor or pastel? Is it an arts and crafts period painting? What year was it done?
The exact year is not known. Johnston lived form 1888-1949 and it is thought to be from the early 20th century. It is oil. The location is NW Ontario.Here's another view:http://www.davidrumsey.com/amico/amico646492-27.html
Hmm? NC Wyeth? I thought of Maxfield Parrish (a paler version) myself.
