Plein air artist Stefan Baumann, host of twenty episodes of “The Grand View: America’s National Parks Through the Eyes of an Artist“, the PBS painting series, and author of “Observations Of Art and Nature“, travels with his vintage trailer throughout America’s western landscapes, painting stunning vistas on location with oils on canvas. Baumann’s art reflects his commitment to ecology and the preservation of the natural environment. In these episodes of “The Grand View,” Stefan Baumann takes his paints, brushes and canvas and hikes deep into the National Parks system to paint his vision of nature’s magnificence and share his passion for the wilderness and art. In each episode he paints in the artistic style of Romantic Realism, pioneered by the American master painters who traveled throughout the west in the 1800’s to sketch similar environmentally inspired paintings. Baumann’s video journals of his treks encompass every aspect of the park as he focuses on the plants, wildlife, geologic and human history that have impacted the region.
