Plein Air, Painting the American Landscape

In 2007, PBS aired a six-episode series entitled Plein Air, Painting the American Landscape. The series features artists Matt Smith, Kenn Backhaus, Jean LeGassick, Charles Sovek, Ron Rencher, and Frank LaLumia traveling throughout the country. Viewers will discover the roots of this uniquely American art form and why painting “en plein air” is once again at the forefront of American representational art.

DVDs are available at as well as a preview of the series.
