In this distinguished work, which Hilton Kramer in The New York Times Book Review called "surely the best book ever written on the subject," Barbara Novak illuminates what is essentially American about American art. She highlights not only those aspects that appear indigenously in our art works, but also those features that consistently reappear over time. Novak examines the paintings of Washington Allston, Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Fitz H. Lane, William Sidney Mount, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, and Albert Pinkham Ryder. She draws provocative and original conclusions about the role in American art of spiritualism and mathematics, conceptualism and the object, and Transcendentalism and the fact. She analyzes not only the paintings but nineteenth-century aesthetics as well, achieving a unique synthesis of art and literature. Now available with a new preface and an updated bibliography, this lavishly illustrated volume--featuring more than one hundred black-and-white illustrations and sixteen full-color plates--remains one of the seminal works in American art history.

In the age of Charles Darwin and John Ruskin, nineteenth-century American artists sought to imitate the truths of nature. Works such as Albert Bierstadt's Lake Lucerne, Frederic Edwin Church's Morning in the Tropics, Thomas Cole's Voyage of Life series, and Asher B. Durand's Forest in the Morning Light are examples of the certainty of vision and faith in the nation's destiny that prevailed during this period of great expansion in America. Winslow Homer's Breezing Up (A Fair Wind), one of nine paintings by the artist in the Gallery's collection, is discussed, as are several works by Thomas Eakins, including The Biglin Brothers Racing, which was inspired by the first pair-oared race in America.

A specifically American form of art emerged in the nineteenth century that was much more than just a reflection of European developments or stylistic trends. It was a period during which noteworthy local traditions were brought to light, and this is reflected in the selection of landscapes, portraits, and genre paintings contained in this volume, with a plate section including 146 works by 43 artists. The works provide a comprehensive survey of American painting spanning more than one hundred years, from the close of the eighteenth century until World War I. In the context of their genre, these works demonstrate both the continuity and the breaks in the development of nineteenth-century American art and question the established art-historical narrative of American painting.

Painting and sculpture flourished in nineteenth-century America and saw the rise of self-taught travelling artists and professional artists producing works for a growing number of wealthy patrons.This innovative introduction examines the profession of the artist alongside the reception of their work by nineteenth-century art audiences. Works of art by familiar names such as Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer are discussed in detail within the larger arena of visual culture, as are key works byrecently discovered artists such as Harriet Hosmer. The thematic approach focuses on portraiture, landscape painting, the American West, commemorative art, and goes on to examine the ways in which painters responded to major social and economic changes resulting from the rapid change from anagriculturally-based former colony to an industrialized imperial power with an evolving democracy.Uniquely, Barbara Groseclose treats the embeddedness of American Art in its European heritage as continual and salutary, rather than intermittent and oppositional, and also explores the changing interpretations of art of this period.

More than one hundred works are catalogued in the second of two volumes devoted to the National Gallery of Art's holdings of nineteenth-century American paintings, including virtually all of the important portraits in the collection. Distinguished in part by the concentration of works by three preeminent artists, Thomas Sully, John Singer Sargent, and James McNeill Whistler, this collection also includes John Quidor's The Return of Rip van Winkle, Albert Pinkham Ryder's Siegfried and the Rhine Maidens, and Rembrandt Peale's Rubens Peale with a Geranium. The author has skillfully untangled the misattributions, misidentifications, and inaccurate provenances surrounding many of the paintings.
