For more than sixty years, Robert W. Wood had his finger on the pulse of American landscape painting. For a number of decades he was America's best-known landscape painter. From his many trips crisscrossing the American continent, he presented us with a record of the unspoiled American landscape. In a very real sense his paintings are an invaluable document of our rapidly vanishing wilderness and pristine seashores, as only Robert Wood could articulate these themes. Whether it was a marine painting depicting Pt. Lobos, a landscape showing Texas bluebonnets in full bloom, or a view of the Rocky Mountains, Wood handled each of these varied subjects with equal facility. He was aware of the new crosscurrents in American art and had contact with these ideas, but Robert Wood elected to travel a solitary path and stay true to his own vision of what constituted the American landscape. Although he was a prolific painter, it was not Wood's paintings alone that brought him to the attention of the general public. Reproductions of his works found their way into virtually every city and town in the United States and were sold abroad.
