Ralph Albert Blakelock

The website Artsy states that:

With the exception of James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Albert Pinkham Ryder, no American Tonalist was more crucial to the development of American modernism than Ralph Albert Blakelock... his poetic and symbolic moonlights of the 1890s, with their emphasis on pattern and abstract design and manipulated paint surfaces, changed the face of American art.


Glyn Vincent has written a definitive biography of Ralph Albert Blakelock entitled The Unknown Night: The Genius and Madness of R.A. Blakelock, an American Painter published by Grove/Atlantic, Inc, which documents Blakelock's Swedenborgian connections and the bizarre intrigue and illness that plagued his life.
