Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Georgia O'Keeffe, Childe Hassam, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Winslow Homer, and Piet Mondrian are some of the 79 artists whose depictions of New York are included in this handsome volume. The book focuses exclusively on Manhattan, and contains varied views of the city: the harbor, street scenes, Wall Street, skyscrapers, lives of the affluent and of the working class. These images portray the evolution of the city over a period of 150 years, and the book includes quotations from artists and writers about New York, as well as interesting text on the artists' relationships with the city. Includes 97 color images.

Synopsis:

The portrait of a city . . . is in a way like a portrait of a person--the difficulty is to catch not only the superficial resemblance but the inner self. The spirit, that's what counts, and one should strive to portray the soul of the city with the same care as the soul of a sitter. ---Childe Hassam, 1913
