In this gallery I focused particularly on the texture within landscapes.

In this painting by Leon Kossoff, texture is used to really express the vision of the artist. Kossoff used oil on board to get this effect of his view. Kossoff has a vocabulary that consisted of "heaviness" and "thickness" which really is a testament to his work. Kossoff's connection with London is really portrayed in this painting and his different perspective is expressed.
In this painting by Albert Pinkham Ryder, texture is utilized to show the mood of this night. This effect was achieved with oil on canvas. I thought this was a perfect fit for this gallery because you can easily see what the artist was trying to achieve. In my opinion it feels like a dry interpretation of what is being envisioned.
When I first saw this painting, I was taken aback by how realistic it is. I chose it for this gallery for the sole fact that it does a perfect job portraying the feeling of the aspects being captured. This effect was achieved using oil on canvas.

In this painting by Albert Bierstadt, texture is perfectly used to express the feeling of each aspect. In my opinion this image is very fantasy-like but still can pass as real. This effect was achieved with oil on canvas. For a painting from 1862, it holds up extremely well and the texture is still spot on.
In this painting by Jan Brueghel, he utilizes light brushstrokes to achieve a surreal look. Brueghel is known for his incorporation of texture in his work. He was even nicknamed "Velvet" Brueghel. The effect from this painting was achieved with light brushstrokes using oil on copper.

Monet's vision of the snow in this painting was a hud achievement in art and I believe it was only successful because of the texture.

It mixes an ideal landscape with realistic aspects and the texture in the image makes it so believable.

In this painting by James Fairman, many texture techniques are utilized. By doing this, we are able to get a pretty calm but dark painting. The colors are pretty warm overall, and we're able to conceptualize the feeling of all the aspects in the foreground. This effect was achieved by using oil on canvas.
In this painting by Dahl Johan Christian, texture helped to carry this image. When looking at the sky, we really get an understanding of the we it may feel. This also goes for the reflection of the sky on the water. All in all, this oil on canvas effect fantastically showed the texture of the sky and water in this night painting.
In this painting at Yosemite by Albert Bierstadt, we see texture that enhances the realism of the painting. The rocks have a very definitive rugged and rough texture. The sky and sun in the background also have a very realistic texture. This effect was achieved using oil on canvas and extremely thin brushstrokes.

From the houses in the background, to the water and grass in the foreground, we are constantly exposed to textural objects. The oil on canvas helped to convey this effect and the thicker brushstrokes gave the painting much more texture. It's also apparent that layering of paint was used here.
In this painting by Willard Leroy Meftcalf, texture is used to portray the vision of this image. The artist used what seemed to be a smudging technique. However, I almost feel like this effect was influenced by the fact that it is oil paint on wood. The wood of course enhances the textural appearance as well. Overall, the painting seems pretty simple but the many techniques used enhanced the texture of the painting,
In this painting by John Singer Sargent, texture is utilized significantly to make this image. The brush strokes a very fluent and light. The sky and the clouds are also very textural themselves. I attribute that to the brushstroke and Sargent's understanding of light in his artwork. This effect is achieved with oil on canvas.
