When he was just a young artist, fresh off the boat from England, Robert Wood fell in love with the American landscape. Known for his paintings of Texas bluebonnets and the California mountains and coasts, Wood would write a highly influential textbook on the principles of landscape painting; wildly popular prints of his dreamily realistic works would be found in homes all across the United States. Tranquil Mood is one of his early autumn landscapes, contrasting near and far, sun and shadow, brilliant colors and subtle hues washed in the haze of the day.
