Harlan Hubbard (1900-1988), Kentucky writer, environmentalist and artist, spent many years trying to rediscover and revive the vanishing language of landscape in his watercolor paintings. Known for their sense of drifting movement and their depiction of the simple way of life for which Hubbard was known, they inexplicably remain his least-studied artworks, despite being some of the best evidence of Hubbard's place in the history of landscape painting.

The Watercolors of Harlan Hubbard not only argues Hubbard's place in the art historical canon, but also highlight and analyze the artist's own voice. In this unique collection, more than 200 watercolors are interspersed with anecdotes to present a personal meditation on the influence that Hubbard's work has had on the lives of those who knew him.
