Maine has long been a source of inspiration for artists. Its mountains and seacoast were a favorite subject of the first great generation of American landscape painters in the 1800s. As the nineteenth century turned into the twentieth, it became a haven for artists who sought an escape from crowded cities and conservative art academics. Today Maine continues to be a magnet for artists, providing and environment that is both aesthetically stimulating and spiritually nurturing, from Mount Katahdin to Monhegan Island, whether realism or abstraction is being explored. The thirty images featured in this book of postcards are representative of the many outstanding artists who’ve found inspiration in the landscapes and seascapes of this beautiful northern state.
