Influenced by the French Barbizon School, Tonalists, and Symbolists, the work of Elliott Daingerfield (1859–1932) seeks to evoke the divine manifest in nature. Daingerfield’s work stands out among his National Academy of Design contemporaries George Inness, Albert Pinkham Ryder, and Ralph Blakelock for its often distinctly southern mood. In addition to a studio adjoining fellow Academy member George Inness in New York, Daingerfield maintained a studio in North Carolina where he was born in 1859.
Placed in the context of late nineteenth century academy, Everlasting Calm includes Daingerfield’s large scale oil paintings of Southern scenes and monumental Western landscapes as well as studies for these works.
