If you've ever gone to a national park and been moved to pick up a paintbrush, sketch pad, or set of pastels, you're far from alone. These inspirational places have motivated countless artists throughout the years, resulting in everything from paintings and photographs to dance performances and classical music.
An elegant new book by Fresco Fine Art Publications reproduces more than 450 works of art in a colorful, large-format hardcover collection, featuring a cross-section of some of the most distinctive and best-loved places in America, including Acadia, the Everglades, Rocky Mountain, Yosemite, and many places in-between. Edited by author and curator Susan Hallsten McGarry, art historian and author Jean Stern, and biologist and educator Terry Lawson Dunn, this handsome collection would make an excellent gift for the park lover in your life.
