Tonalism
Benjamin Foster's painting specialty was bucolic scenes of the New England countryside. His style was predominantly Tonalist* with subdued colors and limited tones---almost exclusively autumn colors, muted browns, grays and rusts. In Tonalist tradition, he completed most of his paintings, both oil and watercolor, in his studio and not on location, en plein air.*

Foster was born in North Anson, Maine, where he spent his childhood, along with his artist brother, Charles Foster (showing 500 of 6046 characters).
