  RALPH ALBERT BLAKELOCK 1847
The numerous forgeries, and Blakelock's obsessively repetitive imagery, his failure to date most of his work, and the lack of thorough documentation, have complicated the task of analyzing his oeuvre and heightened the romantic aura surrounding his life.
Blakelock was born and raised in New York City where he attended the Free Academy of New York, now City College of New York, from 1864 to 1866.
Blakelock's early efforts are largely prosaic demonstrations of his assimilation of the Hudson River School landscape aesthetic.

Blakelock's visions of the landscape often feature a dark silhouetted foreground thickly painted in pigment that he sometimes mixed with bitumen (coal tar), resulting in a pitch-fl effect.

 Abraham Davidson: Ralph Albert Blakelock
"Blakelock is an artist who provides a fascinating excursion around the major schools and traditions of American painting of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
In this comprehensive study, Abraham Davidson argues convincingly that Blakelock is one of the greatest American painters of the nineteenth century, whose art ranges from the "romantic visionary" school reminiscent of Albert Pinkham Ryder to, later in his tragic life, a more realistic, physically experimental style often touching on abstraction.
He also explores Blakelock's connections to various American movements, including the Hudson River School, the Barbizon School, and Tonalism, and discusses the works he produced while institutionalized for schizophrenia for much of the last twenty years of his life.

 Anschutz Collection of Western Art, Museum Natural History
The seventy-six paintings of the Anschutz Collection include major 19th Century figures like Asher B. Durand, Albert Bierstadt, George Inness, Thomas Moran and a sampling of 20th Century artists (good works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Thomas Hart Benton and Jackson Pollock) dominated by the Taos artists and cowboy painters and illustrators.
Earlier, Thomas Moran's "Indian Pueblo, Laguna, New Mexico," 1908, and Ralph Blakelock's "New Mexico Landscape," 1869, set a standard for honest response to the Indian and his environment largely unmatched by later artists.
Moran's wonderfully subtle, tawny color and sensitive, painterly blend of glazes and impasto, and Blakelock's richly gouged and scumbled surface capture the timeless mystery of the wedding of man and architecture with the great earth from which both are made.
