#3: Landscape and Modernity (Ten Best of the Decade from Half of the World's Fair)

These never got formalized into an official series (not to demystify it too much, but that formalization process requires mostly that Dave make an icon to put on the sidebar). Nevertheless, they ended up as an eight-part set of posts about landscape art of various types. I'll put a representative sample from each one below, each one clickable back to the original post. For clicking duplication, that first set (of western U.S. landscapes), ran in October 2008; the last, and most appropriate for this blog (it was about World's Fairs) ran this past June. I loved these.
