The Passage - Return of Indiana Painters from Germany, 1880-1905

by Martin Krause


"'The Passage' traces the progress of a generation of Hoosier artists who studied together at the Royal Academy of Painting in Munich in the 1880s and returned to the United States to achieve national prominence as Indiana landscape painters. Martin Krause chronicles the passage of such noted artists as Theodore Clement Steele, John Ottis Adams, Samuel Richards, and William Forsyth through the classical curriculum of the Royal Academy." "...this luxurious catalogue includes 116 full color reproductions of works by Hoosier artists who studied in Germany along with a generous selection of duotone contextual illustrations. Individual entries provide thorough discussions of each painting, and a series of chronological essays describe the geography, history and social context in which these distinguished Indiana artists lived and worked." Martin Krause, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Indianapolis Museum of Art
