paintings > contemporary romance

These are paintings that reference landscape painting of the 19th century, especially in England and America. Artists I was looking at while making these were JMW Turner, Thomas Cole, Frederick Church, and Asher Durand, to name a few. How each painting is individually influenced by these artists can be found on their specific pages.
