Historical Context:
Ivan Fortushniak's landscape paintings, drawings, and mixed-media works are all heavily influenced by artists such as George Inness, Winslow Homer and Albert P. Ryder. He often references their work in his art, as well as subtly adding figures from art history into the stories his paintings tell. While many of his works of art explores subjects like war and the Bible, some works concentrate more on the forms that can be depicted through layering imagery to create the atmospheric depth in this painting.
