About the Book

This vibrant book displays 42 colour 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. American Landscapes contains works by some of the most important figures in the history of American art, including the Hudson River School’s Thomas Doughty and Asher B. Durand; European-influenced artists Theodore Robinson, William Lamb Picknell, and William Stanley Haseltine; and artists associated with major American artist colonies such as John Henry Twachtman, John Sloan, and Ernest Lawson. In addition, this volume features important highlights of the museum’s unique collection of paintings by artists who lived and worked on Eastern Long Island, including William Merritt Chase, Samuel Colman, Irving Wiles and Frederick Childe Hassam, as well as contemporary painters Fairfield Porter, Jane Freilicher, and Alex Katz. The exhibition will be at Mobile Museum of Art, October 15, 2010 to January 5, 2011; Westmoreland Museum of American Art (in Greensburg, PA), January 30, 2011-April 24, 2011. Other venues to be confirmed.
