Having absorbed the teachings of her father and mother, artists C. E. and Betty Monroe, as well as those of her parents’ neighbors, none other than John Clymer and Bob Kuhn, Lanford Monroe delved deeply into the soul of American realism. Moody landscapes, and a sense of the seen, unseen and half-seen, echo the tenets of romantic painting, but Monroe transformed and transcended the canons. It’s rare to see a human figure in Monroe’s paintings, yet in Winter Road, the way the man walking down the rutted road blends with his surroundings, there and not there, echoes her treatment of animals in more typical works.
