Luce Center Label

Andrew Dasburg believed that it was important to bring out the relationship between man and nature. He wrote that he was captivated by the “grandeur of the land . . . the mountains . . . the plains . . . what man has made . . . all my work is involved with the human element.” (Whitney, Spirited Visions: The Art of Andrew Dasburg, 1999) Dasburg used short, cross-hatched brushstrokes to integrate a full range of colors into every part of Rolling Hills, stitching the roads and farmhouses, fields, hills and sky into a unified whole.
