Inhaltsangabe: Many people consider that America's most original contribution to the history of art is in the medium of watercolour, with inventive and brilliant artists such as Sargent and Homer, LaFarge and Prendergast, Demuth and Martin, Hopper and Burchfield. Featuring 125 of the most beautiful watercolours from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this book begins with an example from the 1790s by Benjamin West, surveys the development of the medium through the 19th and early-20th centuries, and concludes with images by Andrew Wyeth from the 1940s.
From Library Journal:
Though John Singer Sargent described painting in watercolor as "making the best of an emergency," many consider works in this medium America's most original artistic contribution. This book, accompanying a major exhibition this summer at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, features 127 stunning examples, each reproduced in full color. Presenting watercolorists of such brilliance as Sargent and Homer, La Farge and Prendergast, Demuth and Marin, and Hopper and Burchfield, the book begins with a sparkling work by Benjamin West from the 1790s, surveys the development of the medium through the 19th and early 20th centuries, and concludes with Andrew Wyeth's images from the 1940s. Essays, research on paper conservation, and a glossary of technical terms complete the text. This beautiful presentation will remain a standard reference for years to come.
