Henry Coe’s luminous, realistically rendered landscape paintings depict the secluded spaces of small-town America, capturing the mundane and the sublime alike. Focused views of train yards and crop fields are combined with sweeping vistas of lush forests and cloud-studded skies, evoking nostalgia for a simpler time when nature provided both sustenance and entertainment. Coe’s paintings of pastoral and agricultural environments recall the work of John Constable and J. M. W. Turner, the seminal 19th-century British landscape painters.
