Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This vibrant book displays 42 color plates ranging from majestic views to intimate glimpses, all of which contribute to what we have come to think of as a distinctly American vision. Works by some of the most important figures in the history of American art include Asher B. Durand; William Merritt Chase, Samuel Colman, Frederick Childe Hassam and Alex Katz.

Book News Annotation:

In this volume published in conjunction with its namesake exhibition at the Parrish Museum, Southampton, NY, September 27-November 29, 2009, curator Longwell introduces the development of the American school of landscape painting and the museum's role in collecting it. She comments on John Ruskin's influence, American artists abroad, art colonies, and American expressionism, impressionism, and modernism. Arranged roughly chronologically by artists' birth date, color plates feature the works of 41 artists focusing on Long Island and other East coast landscapes including Thomas Doughty, Samuel Colman, Frederick Childe Hassam, Edith Mitchell Prellwitz, Anna May Robertson (Grandma Moses), and Jennifer Bartlett. Distributed in North America by ACC Distribution. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
