Landscapes consists of selected paintings from 1951-2004 by Paul Matthews. The book was published in conjuntion with the exhibition "Paul Matthews: Landscapes and Figures in the Landscape" August 2004 at the Atea Ring Gallery in Westport, New York. Paul Matthews landscapes stand the test of our own post-modern time, where the digital world consumes our daily lives. Rather, Matthews mountainous vistas allow the viewer to be still and absorb silence. Additionally, Matthews landscape paintings express an honorable positioning amidst such notorious art historical landscape painters as Winslow Homer, Rockwell Kent, William Trost Richards, The Hudson River School (Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Asher B. Durand), and Harold Weston respectively. More importantly, over half of Matthews landscapes are an important representation of the Adirondack Mountains.
