Fall Style Guide: Inspired by Tonalism

We recently stumbled on a 19th-century art movement called Tonalism – a style marked by deep neutral hues (think grey, blue, and brown) and atmospheric, misty brushstrokes that signaled a step away from Realism and a leap towards Impressionism and Modernism. Not only are we now inspired by these newfound works of painters like James McNeill Whistler and George Inness, we also think they’re the perfect pieces to turn to if you’re look to nail down your color palette for fall. Meet three Tonalist paintings, with the perfect specs to match:
