For the landscape painter, the newly emerging towns in Virginia were a subject that inspired
straightforward imagery, outside of the tradition of
the Picturesque. Lefevre Cranstone, an Englishman,
would be but one in a long succession of artists
in Virginia to paint city views in a style that is
linear and attentive to crisp illumination that
allows clarity of vision.
