Kipniss is a noted American landscape artist working who is a painter and master printmaker. It has been said that he is the greatest mezzotint printer to ever live. Much has written regarding the cool intensity and the isolation found in his work. It has been observed that Kipniss has done for the countryside what Hopper did for the city. His subjects are austere limbs and trees, modest houses with simple shapes, rolling countryside, and luminescent and shadowy interiors. Though at first glance his work may look simple, the artist's work conjures feelings and stirs the emotion of the viewer.
