MY BIRTHDAY FALLS NEAR THANKSGIVING and my favorite gift is an art book. This year I received Leconte Stewart Masterworks. Leconte was a huge influence on my work, along with Van Gogh, and I was really looking forward to this edition. The book is jammed with fantastic reproductions and, needless to say, I was thrilled to get the book. Read my review here.
This book will be a great companion to my William Wendt and my Edgar Payne books. If you are a landscape painter, especially if you paint in an impressionistic manner, you need these three books in your library.
