Lookout Point, The Grand Canyon Of The Yellowstone

Historically speaking, Moran Point in Yellowstone National Park is one of the earliest locations to be widely recognised as a scenic viewpoint. It is named after the American painter Thomas Moran, whose masterpiece ‘The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone’ was inspired by this stunning vista. In this book, Hans Gremmen explores what happens if different perspectives and stories are used over time and rendered into a new reality. The centrepiece of this visual research is a series of nine oil paintings that were created in recent years by Chinese painters who copied each other’s work. In doing so, a new version of Moran’s famous painting emerged. [publisher's note]
