An excellent repro edition of the classic work by Birge Harrison. Great quality, sound binding. Landscape painters will benefit greatly from Harrison's teaching, full of wisdom (such as "Drawing is the grammar of art" and "Always leave something to the imagination of the beholder. A picture is often complete long before you suspect it."

This is book, and a lot of practice, is all you need to become a good landscape painter.

Please note that this book was originally published in 1909, so the way Harrison uses the English language is eloquent and not filled with modern slang. I found it a complete pleasure to read.

I've had my copy for a few years now and it's heavily thumbed and annotated from lots of use. It's my main reference book and inspiration.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very large print makes it easy to read this book.First published over a century ago, the writing style takes a little getting used to, but the "meat" is worth the effort. Simply put tenets of painting, each with its own short chapter, are put forward for the artist to digest. I found it helpful to reflect on my own current work, after each chapter. In my view, it never hurts to be reminded of what needs to be considered from time to time to make a good painting. That the images are not in color doesn't concern me.The values & composition are clear, even in the pixilated examples. Color was not common in printing, so the original printing would have been black & white as well.
The cost of this book is so little that it should be in every landscape artist's library, along with another oldie, but goody - John Carlsen's "Guide to Landscape Painting".

Apparently, someone took a copy of the original book, which is long out of print, scanned it using OCR software, and made a book out of it. Resultingly, there are chronic spelling errors. The word "motif", for example, is rendered "motive" over and over again. And the reproductions of paintings are awful -- and unnecessarily so, since high quality images of all these pictures were certainly available, and I for one would have been happy to pay twice the price to get them.

Now that I've got all of this off my chest...

If you're interested in landscape painting, I can't imagine a better book than this. Harrison lived to see the French impressionists blossom, and lived to see them re-evaluate their spot and dash system, and eventually discard it. He saw the American painters harvest the best of what the French discovered, and take landscape painting much farther. And he describes every bit of it.

I wish his description of the contemporary American method -- a "warm undertone and a cool overtone" -- were more thorough, and if anybody else ever described this method in detail, I've yet to find it.

But his explanation of refraction, of vibration, and particularly his marvelous chapter on composition, are as good as it gets. Read the book at night, because you'll want to go out into the field when the sun comes up.

I bought this book on a whim and really wasn't expecting much. However I found the information to be quite good. There are chapters that weren't of much interest to me. like framing a painting and a few others that were outdated (some mediums and paints are no longer relevant for example). The illustrations are worthless as they appear to be photocopies of the original full-value black and white reproductions. The entire book is a facsimile reproduction and the text has been reproduced extremely large so until you get used to it it seems like a second grade reader. But for the price I can overlook such publication errors.

If you are looking to replicate painting in a realist style in the fashion of the last century this may be the book for you.

Thanks to forgottenbooks.org for reproducing this wonderful book. His instructions for the use of values and tones in painting the landscape are great. They are phrased differently than the way modern instructors phrase the same concepts. This somehow leads to a better understanding of how to implement these concepts using paint. The book references techniques I had heard of before, but in a way that explains how and why these techniques work, who used them, and their effect. Great book, you have to appreciate it for the information it conveys and not for its visual quality of reproduction. Anyone learning to paint the landscape should read it - up there with Carlson and Payne.

This is a classic by an artist who taught for the Art Students League of New York at the Woodstock summer school. This is a book worth reading many times.

The guy is genius, this book is packed with good information about what makes a good landscape. A lot of the information gets rehashed by his sucessors, but he has a good succinct way of explaining things.

The negative is there are LOTS of errors in the print. It looks like they must have put an printed edition through a scanner, but didn't bother to proofread it. There lots of letters in words that are just wrong, an 8 for an s, a b for an h, an l for an f, you know the sort of thing scanners get wrong. It is very annoying.

Since the original is long out of print, I suppose we are lucky to have any edition available to us. Too bad they didn't take even a small amount of care in preparing it.
I almost didn't buy this book due to the complaints about spelling and grammar as well as awful pictures. However I went ahead and am very pleased. I just received it and have read perhaps 6 or so chapters and found them thought provoking and informative and not at all difficult to read. I did not buy the book for the pictures (if that's what you are after, you will most likely be disappointed). The content is really good stuff and worth reading and re-reading and keeping around.
