Albert Pinkham Ryder

Albert Pinkham Ryder, The Sheepfold, Oil on Canvas, 1870
"If Bierstadt's and Moran's vistas trupeting national opportunity represent one extreme- landscape as expansive, public declaration- Ryder's small nature notes seem to have imploded, leaving a small, silent, concentrated core."

~From Albert Pinkham Ryder by Elizabeth Broun
