Über diesen Titel


Book by Wilton Andrew Barringer Tim


Winner of the Art Exhibition Catalogue Award, Art Newspaper/AXA
Winner of the Henry-Russell Hitchcock Award
"A gorgeously illustrated and learned history of nineteenth-century American landscape painting. . . . Wilton and Barringer's commentary is stimulating and important, and the exceptional plates are bliss unadulterated."--Booklist

"Splendid. . . . Andrew Wilton and Tim Barringer have written a book to treasure. . . . A valuable contribution to the study of American art history."--Phyllis Tuchman, ArtNet Magazine

"The essays and catalog entries are well written and informative, providing a geographic and historical context for the artwork, [but] it is the stunning illustrations (including several two-page foldouts) that dazzle the eye and imagination."--Library Journal

"What glorious images these are!"--National Geographic Adventure

"Highly and enthusiastically recommended."--Choice

"The spectacular paintings that record [the] search for sublimity, handsomely printed here, retain their power to entice and overwhelm."--New York Times Book Review

"At first glance, the color plates reproduced in American Sublime seem to be nothing more than pretty pictures. Only when the authors put them back into the political and cultural context in which they were created do the images take on new meanings, and only then do we begin to see the sometimes grandiose intentions of the artists who painted them and the art collectors who displayed them."--Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times

"The catalog is far more than a souvenir of this astonishing [exhibition]. There are two well-contrasted essays by the exhibition's organizers Andrew Wilton and Tim Barringer, and reproductions of each work are accompanied by very ample notes. . . . [B]oth authors emphasize the religious and ethical themes portrayed, or more often symbolized, in many of the works."--Geoffrey Newman, The Art Book

"Wilton and Barringer no doubt convinced their British readers and exhibition patrons that these Americans do indeed fit into an aesthetic continuum, engaging in the discourse of the Sublime (as well as the Beautiful). They move American readers to a less parochial appreciation of our local heroes."--Nancy J. D. Hazelton, The Bloomsbury Review
