Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Making American Taste: Narrative Art for a New Democracy is a landmark publication focusing on American narrative art from 1825 to 1870. A significant contribution to our understanding of taste and collecting during this period, it reasseses themes including the rural and the domestic, as well as a broad range of historical, literary and religious subject matter. American art at this time was dominated by powerful arguments about what constituted true art: should it be for the many, or the educated few, and should specifically American art forms and styles be favoured over more traditional, academic, European traditions. Making American Taste looks at these issues through the work of both well-known artists, like Benjamin West, Asher B. Durand and Eastman Johnson, and less familiar names such as Daniel Huntington, Henry Peters Gray and Louis Lang. N° de réf. du libraire AA79781904832768

Critique: "Makes a substantial contribution to the understanding of this too-often ignored and undervalued class of painting and sculpture"--Bruce Cole, "Wall Street Journal""An important contribution to nineteenth-century American art scholarship"--"The Magazine Antiques""The latest in a sequence of stellar publications that throw open new windows onto the holdings of the New-York Historical Society"--Katherine Manthorne, Professor of American Art, Graduate Center, City University of New York"Adds greatly to our understanding of how nineteenth-century paintings told stories"--Marc Simpson, Associate Director of the Graduate Program in the History of Art, Williams College."Exquisitely illustrated with both recognized and under-appreciated masterpieces"--Holly Pyne Connor, Ph.D., Curator of 19th-Century American Art, Newark Museum"[Digs] down to expose the tangled roots of taste formation in a disorderly new democracy that was still trying to figure out what should be "American" about American art"--Sarah Burns, Ruth N. Halls Professor, Indiana University"Along the way, we encounter works of art we've long considered quaintly irrelevant and are reintroduced to the paintings and sculptures we thought we knew well"--Rebecca E. Lawton, Curator of Paintings and Sculpture, Amon Carter Museum of American Art
