Daniel Lang was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1935. He graduated with a BA degree from the University of Tulsa and a Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Iowa, and his postgraduate studies included four Yaddo Fellowships and two MacDowell Colony Fellowships. In 1975, Lang visited and painted landscapes of Antarctica as part of a National Science Foundation program.

Lang had many solo exhibitions at prestigious locations including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The University of Chicago, and Arthur Tooth and Sons in London which invited him to come to England and paint his interpretations of the English landscape.

Daniel Lang is best known for his paintings of invented landscapes based on sketches and snapshots from his global travels.  Inspired by "Big skies, flat land and long drives with the radio."  In this painting we see a road cutting a swathe though the green countryside of Dorset; the manner in which the trees are painted in different angle to the road gives a dynamic feel of speed and motion.

Daniel Lang's work is included in international public collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Hunterian Art Gallery of the University of Glasgow in Scotland.
