Few painters have ever captured the true, overpowering intensity of sunlight as well as Arthur G. Rider. His work reflects his studies with famed Spanish Impressionist Joaquin Sorolla. Beautiful scenery, in a sense of atmospheric perspective, characteristic of Rider’s work can be seen in his work as backdrop artist at MGM/Fox Studios. He painted for many well known films, including Ben Hur and Wizard of Oz. As an American Impressionist, Rider stands without comparison as the ultimate practitioner of Impressionist color theory.
