Overview

Urban realism, snow-covered streets of New York, boxing matches, children on the banks of a river, the painters of the Ash Can School preferred realistic images. Their paintings are a true hymn to noise and sensations. This unconventional movement enabled the birth of a true national artistic identity which broke free from the establishment. The Ash Can School resolutely promoted the affirmation of the modernist current of American art. Edward Hopper, who was a student of Robert Henri, embraced the principles of this movement and brought them to another level.

Gerry Souter learned about trains at his grandfather's knee in the New York Central roundhouse at Buffalo, New York, and sprawled next to his own Lionel trains beginning at age eight. He met Janet, his wife, in a darkroom at the School of the Chicago Art Institute. Their cameras have visited many Lionel layouts bringing creative illustration to their words. The Souters currently live in Arlington, Illinois.
