American Painting features over 100 masterworks from the MFA, dating from 1670 to 1960, with artists ranging from Copley, Whistler, Cassatt, and Sargent to Hopper, Marin, Gorky, and Pollock. In lucid prose, it both narrates a history of American painting -- touching on the American Revolution, westward expansion, the Civil War, and the two World Wars – and explores broader themes, such as the American artists’ relationship with European art, the establishment of native painting styles, and the question of provincial vs. “high” art. A valuable and enjoyable resource for both museum visitor and general reader.
