Maureen Mullarkey reviews In the Tonalist Mood: Paintings from the 1860s to the Present. The exhibition presents works by classic tonalist painters such as Kenyon Cox, Arthur Wesley Dow and John La Farge, as well as a host of rarely seen painters. Mullarkey writes: "You cannot leave this exhibition without wanting to see more... It is precisely the unselfconscious beauty and pictorial intelligence of these more under-recognized painters that makes the exhibition revelatory."
In the Tonalist mood is on view at Spanierman Gallery through February 11, 2011.
