The Indiana Dunes Revealed serves as the accompanying catalogue for the exhibition of Dudley's work showing from August 15 to November 30, 2006 at the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University. In some areas, Dudley's painting may be the only record of a lost dunescape, and as the struggle between development and preservation continues, his enduring art reminds us of the need for a sustainable environment for the Great Lakes. Frank Dudley (1868-1957) spent 40 years promoting the preservation of the Indiana Dunes, using his skills as a landscape painter to showcase the natural beauty of Indiana's Lake Michigan shoreline.

Reviews about The Indiana Dunes Revealed: The Art of Frank V. Dudley (7):
Mr.Bean
I grew up in the Indiana Dunes in the 1950s & 60s. I never knew about this artist! Tremendous color plates and narrative about the early artists and intellectuals who basically came from the city of Chicago in the late 19th/early 20th centuries, and basically laid the groundwork to "Save the Dunes". Dudley definitely caught the spirit and light of the Dunes. Many of the areas he painted are gone, covered over with a steel mill built in the 1960s. They wouldn't be allowed to do that nowadays.

This book is a testament to the fact that, contrary to public opinion, there are more things than cornfields in Indiana. Indiana is home to a diversity of unique landscapes and habitats not the least of which are the Lake Michigan dunes. Reproductions of Frank V. Dudley's brilliant impressionist paintings bring this glorious landscape to the fore in this scholarly tome. We learn from "The Indiana Dunes Revealed" that Dudley's work stretches far beyond artistic endeavor. He was also one of the leading U.S. environmentalists during the first half of the twentieth century. The only thing better than viewing Dudley's many sumptuous paintings is actually standing on the sand overlooking the lake. Dudley convinces this reviewer that I am actually on an Indiana beach feeling the wind blow against my face and the surf move beneath my feet. Those that enjoy this book will also want to purchase "The Saugatuck Dunes: Artists Respond to a Freshwater Landscape" by Alison Swan.

Very beautiful!

This is the kind of book on American regional art that deserves to be on any art lover's shelf. It is a perfect blend of scholarship and readability, plus the illustrations are fabulous. Take a chance and buy this book if you can still find it & you won't be disappointed,

Frank Dudley mainly painted the Indiana Dunes...a unique park on Lake Michigan's southwest shore...located just southeast of Chicago. This book reveals his life, his fight (mainly through his popular and numerous Dunes paintings) to save the Dunes from being totally swallowed up by the steel industry, and of course contains many well-done images of his better known Dunes paintings.

The paintings seem to be well photographed and represent those originals I saw at a Valparaiso University Dudley exhibition...quite well! (The first function of an art book being...to show you the Artwork!!!)

In the early 20th Century, the far west edge of the massive sand and plant structures called "Dunes" were cleared...to make way for various steel plants. (I heard that the sand dunes on steel mill land were hauled away by train to a glass factory...to make your Great Grandma's Canning Jars!!!)

Early conservationists such as Dudley fought the destruction of these huge sand drifts called dunes (some many, many feet high...) which also contain biologically unique flora and fauna studied by biologists
. They were partly successful. A large section of remaining Duneland was turned into a park which can be enjoyed to this day--and is well worth the trip!!!

Frank Dudley loved the Dunes and his oil paintings show it. From 1912 to 1956, he produced many Duneland paintings. Dudley is not well known, tho I saw online some art dealers calling for "Frank Dudley paintings". As he did not sign many of his works, who knows how many of his paintings are still out there???

He and his wife entertained hundreds of visitors in their Dunes cottage where he exhibited, sold and sometimes even gave away his many Dunes paintings.

This book should be of interest to painters of landscapes and water; to a
nyone interested in an early conservation fight; and to anyone just loving the Indiana Dunes.
* * * * *
One minor complaint. The section about the conservation work to save the Dunes is also a gushing totally uncritical hymn of praise to "progressives". (They seem peeved that a little event called World War I interfered with their Dunes work...Hmmm!)
(Guess I am not entranced with their gushing quotes from then-icon John Dewey, as my Dewey molded education was partly deficient.)
However, it is great they helped preserve part of the Dunes, and their early work to preserve the Dunes is commendable!

Politics aside...my Paperback version of this book was well made and has stood up to my many perusals of its wonderful contents!
Frank Dudley was a gifted artist who became passionately interested in the grass-roots campaign to save the Indiana dunes from predation by Northwest Indiana's steel mills, other industrial encroachment, and pollution. For years, he captured the wild beauty of the region on canvas and, as his fame spread, so did his message. His painting of the 1917 Indiana Dunes Pageant, a sweeping outdoor presentation that attracted over 25,000 viewers willing to trek across sand dunes to see it, remains one of the only eyewitness paintings of the event still extant. This book chronicles Dudley's development as a painter and his life in the dunes; the plates are superb, and if you were unable to view them at Valparaiso University's recent exhibition, this keepsake volume will be the next best thing to seeing his original works firsthand. As an aside, I went to the Dudley exhibit at Valparaiso University, where the book was selling at list price. A few mouse clicks later, I had ordered the book at a deep discount at Amazon.com. Three more days, and it was in my hands. It doesn't get much better than that!
