Isaac Levitan: Paintings By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Isaac Levitan was a classical Russian landscape painter who advanced the genre of the "mood landscape". His extremely influential art heritage consists of more than a 1000 paintings,... More > pastels, graphics, and illustrations. Levitan's paintings were a deep response to the lyrical magic of the Russian landscape. He did not paint city landscapes; with few exceptions.
