Summary
"This new volume accompanies and complements the publication of the two-volume authoritative catalogue of the Brooklyn Museum's collection of American paintings by artists born by 1876. It provides a richly illustrated general survey of American painting from the late colonial era to the early years of the twentieth century, as presented in sixty-four of the Museum's most significant paintings by American artists. Each painting is illustrated in color, and the selected works are arranged in four broad chronological sections: early American art; art of the 1830s to 1850s; American painting in the Civil War era; and cosmopolitan painting of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Extended captions present the key features of each painting and artist, and of the wider artistic context of the work and the period in which it was produced."--BOOK JACKET
