Monterey cypress diptych oil painting by modern impressionist artist Erin Hanson

Monterey Diptych



58 x 116 in

The wispy cypress trees in Monterey are eminently paintable, their pale bark reflecting the colorful atmosphere, the long branches lifting seemingly weightless tufts of green high into the air. These two paintings can be hung close together or separately across the room.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. With hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
