Painted History: The Landscapes of Valley View Farm
Essay by William M. S. Rasmussen
Sale Price: $1.00
Located in Fauquier County, in the hunt country of the northern Piedmont, Valley View Farm is a historic property where the Old Virginia tradition of rural living in an idyllic setting has survived. Visitors are enraptured by the serenity of this landscape. Residents speak of a heartfelt sense of place and home that the property engenders. Artist Andrei Kushnir has responded to these emotions in paintings that capture our attention first with their persistent and careful observation of the Virginia rural landscape, and again upon reflection about what these images represent of our past and possibly our future. The paintings of Valley View Farm that are displayed in this catalog will endure as a lasting record of a place, time, and lifestyle.
Catalog features 50 full-color prints.
