D. Frederick Baker Antiques & Fine Art : "An extraordinary achievement .. [Pisano's] work enriches our appreciation of a towering talent in late-nineteenth-century American art."-D. Frederick Baker, Antiques & Fine Art

Book Description
A perennial favorite of museum visitors, the works of William Merritt Chase (1849–1916) embody the quintessential characteristics of American Impressionism: outdoor landscapes, a colorful palette, and an energetic brushstroke.

Book Description
Hailed early on as a genius destined to transform American art, William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) put his innovative stamp on American painting during a five-year span when he suddenly changed his technique and subject matter and began producing gorgeous, sun-dappled Impressionist views of New York parks and coastlines-the first Impressionist works ever painted of American landscapes. This volume-which accompanies an exhibition of Chase's urban landscapes at the Brooklyn Museum of Art-is the first in-depth study of this pivotal period in Chase's career. Armed with new discoveries about the life of the man who became known as "the artistic interpreter of Central Park and Prospect Park," the author shows how Chase turned to his urban scenes to heed the nationalist call of his critics. With splendid illustrations that...

Book Review
The turn of the century in America experienced both the peak of the aesthetics of impressionism and widespread growth in its greatest city--New York. Like the French impressionists in Paris, many American impressionists took to the streets, using the realities of urban life as the subject of their work. An authority on American impressionism, Dr. William H. Gerdts provides a thorough chronicle of this work and the time in which it was painted--one of public consciousness and celebration. The paintings in the book are visions of urban optimism, focusing on buildings, parks, and street scenes. Because many of the buildings in these paintings are no longer standing, this work is a documentary of a time long gone. The book balances text, image, and white space nicely. Throughout the text, sidebars of quotes by the artists and...


California Impressionists

Book Description
The years around the turn of the century were a dynamic time in American art. Different and seemingly contradictory movements were evolving, and the dominant style that emerged during this period was Impressionism. Based in part on the broken brushwork and high-keyed palette of Claude Monet, it was a form especially suited to the dramatic landscape and shimmering light of California. American Impressionism grew in popularity as artists from across the nation migrated to the Golden State. There they created a remarkable style, often referred to as California plein-air painting, combining several aspects of American and European art and capturing the brilliant mix of color and light that defined California.
This book celebrates forty Impressionist painters who worked in California from 1900 through the...

From Library Journal
These picture books accompany four of the eight exhibitions traveling through 2002 while the National Museum of American Art undergoes renovation. They cover periods or themes in American art and historyDthe West from the Louisiana Purchase to the Taos School, young America from 1760 to the Civil War, the Gilded Age from the Civil War into the 1920s, and American Impressionism from 1880 to 1930. Organized alphabetically by artist, each book presents single-page color plates facing brief entries of 100-150 words written by the museum's staff. With the minimal text and the arrangement by artist, the books lack sustained arguments. Nevertheless, they give a broad overview of their particular periods, including many famous and less-well-known works, and will make quite affordable additions to public libraries....

Book Description
James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) left the United States for Europe at the age of twenty-one, never to return, and his style developed independently of American art currents. Nonetheless, he left an indelible mark on the art of his native land, for his modernist aesthetic influenced the work of a generation of American painters. This beautifully illustrated book-published to commemorate the centenary of the artist's death-addresses Whistler's extraordinary legacy and establishes his pivotal place in the history of American art. After Whistler juxtaposes fourteen of the artist's most important works with an array of pictures by thirty-eight other American painters-including Henry Ossawa Tanner, William Merritt Chase, and John Singer Sargent-to demonstrate how Whistler's American contemporaries were affected by his...
