George Inness : “Approaching Storm from the Alban Hills” (1871)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Inness began his career executing detailed, realistic landscapes in a style similar to other artists of the Hudson River School. As he developed, his work became increasingly free, mystical, and expansive. Perhaps the most important phase of Inness’s career was a sojourn in France and Italy from 1870 to 1874, during which he cast aside the tightness of his early style and executed some of his most beautiful works. This panoramic landscape of a storm approaching the Alban Hills, near Rome, shows Inness at his best. His grasp of the way light fitfully pierces the clouds made every form in the painting mysterious and fascinating, and his skillful handling of color conveys the impression of a vast distance.
