A Painter's Path Through the Catskill Mountains

A Painter's Path Through the Catskill Mountains:
Landscapes in Pastel

Robert Selkowitz

A master of pastels, Selkowitz's gentle landscapes easily transport the viewer to the lush hills and valleys of the Catskill Mountains that surround his home and studio. Evoking nature's tranquility, these bright yet quiet pastels invite the viewer to a share a moment of reflection. From the frigid austerity of his winter landscapes, through the succulent colors of spring and summer, to the soft, warm tones of autumn, the artist accompanies us on a journey through some of the most picturesque villages, mountains and river valleys in this part of our country. Preceded by short essays by Mr. Selkowitz and others, which provide an excellent introduction and help to put his art in perspective, this collection of landscape pastels is an invaluable contribution to the body of artwork inspired by the Catskill Mountains. Robert Selkowitz resides in Ashokan, New York.
