- The artist Eugene Kingsman was born in Rhode Island in 1909 and died in 1975.
- He was an accomplished landscape painter, and one of the Regionalist American artists, whose realistic pieces depicted rural and small town U.S.A.
- Kingman was interested in art from an early age, and eventually received a degree in Fine Arts from Yale University.
- Whilst he was there, he accepted a commission from the National Park Service, and seven of his park scenes were exhibited at the Paris Expo.
- In addition to canvas pieces, artist Eugene Kingman painted murals, including one for The New York Times building.
- His landscapes for sale feature American national parks, including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Mt. Rainier.
- Kingman eventually became the director of the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, where he worked to promote the arts.
- He worked in a high contrast manner, putting highlights and shade next to each other with little blending.
- The high contrast creates quite a dramatic rendering, which is reinforced by the use of intense, saturated colours.
- The surface of the canvases are rough with the marks of Kingman's paint application, most likely with a palette knife.
- The lighting in Kingman's scenes feels quite harsh, due in part to the use of unmodified whites and yellows as highlights, and also because of the sharp juxtaposition of highlights and shadows.
