Frank T, Hutchens, a plein air painter of landscapes, figures, and marines, was a master realist and representational artist. Described as “a painter of moods”, Hutchens was particularly adept at depicting sunlight and atmospheric ambience.
Hutchens was particularly adept at depicting sunlight and the resulting golden luster as may be seen in our Spring Landscape. This work is a rich tapestry of thick, impastic paint with electrifying colors. His Impressionist manner of painting, marked by an unusual sense of color, lends the landscape a kinetic energy and liveliness, capturing Hutchens' feeling for the landscape rather than a literal translation of it.
