This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Clarence Raymond Johnson (1894-1981), from Pennsylvania, painted the rural landscape with an Impressionist style and subjects focused on nature. He often selected a high vantage point for his paintings, with foreground clusters of trees and houses below, leading to extensive vistas of distant hills and sky.

His color is rich with unexpected combinations of relatively high-key, atmospheric pastel shades. His forms have a rounded solidity (with just a subtle hint of Cezanne) and are more characteristic of American painting than the French Impressionist landscape painting of Monet and Renoir.

"Summer Landscape", oil, 36 x 40, typifies Johnson's depiction of nature with airy, three-dimensional appearing forms of foreground trees, and just an edge of a red roof appearing through them, leading to a view of distant hills and beyond, softened and blued by intervening atmosphere.

Johnson studied at the Columbus, Ohio School of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy with Emil Carlson, and Cecilia Beaux, and in Paris. He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy , the National Academy, and the Art Institute of Chicago. He lived in Lumberville and Lansdowne, Pennsylvania.
