Freeric Edwin Church Fine Art Pages: $14.95
Frederic Edwin Church was an incredible American painter that specialized in landscape scenes that seem quite like an 1800s version of today’s picture postcard you’d pick up on vacation. You’ll get to see paintings of Niagara Falls, Natural Bridge in Virginia, Tequendama Falls, scenes from the Andes and the Adirondacks, the coast of Maine, rainbows in the tropics, icebergs and shipwrecks, meteors, the Aurora Borealis, and more! If you’re looking for art that can enhance your geography studies, this is a must have!
In this collection you’ll get to enjoy 22 pieces of Church’s art in both our traditional Fine Art Pages format, as well as full page versions. You’ll also get our fun and helpful guide, “How to Use Fine Art Pages in Your Home.”
Style: Romanticism, Luminism
Time Period: mid-late 1800s
Well, both girls became very excited when we saw two Matisse prints hanging in our local public library. (Fine Arts pages by Matisse happen to be hanging in the upstairs bathroom right now.) I reminded the girls that the artist was Matisse. And then my 4-year old (who is always interested in the titles of the paintings) said to me, “I know what that painting there is called,” and she paused. “Dessert: Harmony in Red,” she said correctly. The library security guard standing nearby nearly fell over, she was so surprised. 🙂
Anyhow, I just wanted to thank you for helping expose my family to Fine Arts — you have truly enriched our lives, and it’s making a difference in our learning.
