Lockwood de Forest
American (1850 - 1932) Primary
9 5/8 in. x 14 in. (24.45 cm x 35.56 cm)
Bryn Mawr College
De Forest painted this sketch of the Grand Canyon on site while visiting the area on one of three trips to the American Southwest. His oil sketch size was almost always 9? x 14 in., as he believed this size permitted the accurate perception of the picture plane at arm’s length.
Despite the fact that he is most well-known for other aspects of his work, de Forest considered himself primarily a painter. He preferred coastal or desert scenery and often chose to sketch at sunrise, sunset, or in moonlight. Although it is not evident in this landscape, he tended to select views with low horizons, filling the frame with the sky.
