Many of Tobey's paintings are characterized by densely packed mosaics of textural marks inspired by Asian calligraphy. Tobey was also one of the founders of the Northwest School, an art movement based in Seattle. Artists of the Northwest School often painted subjects pertaining to the state of Washington and used earthy and gray tones and soft lighting in their work. Artists who were part of this movement also appeared to be influenced by Cubism, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism. Predominantly illustrations with an introductory essay by Werner Schmalenbach.
