Historical Context:
Much of his work remains semi-abstract, but Stephen Duren is often pulled away from his studio by a call he has answered since his youth to paint directly from nature. Of these moments Grand Rapids Magazine wrote that he is "rejoicing in the rightness of created things." He was inspired by numerous European artists from the 1800s, including Constable, Corot, Corbet, Sisley, Van Gogh and Monet.
