America speaks through its artists. As Updike states in his introduction, “The dots can be connected from Copley to Pollock: the same tense engagement with materials, the same demand for a morality of representation, can be discerned in both." This collection of essays on American Art expounds on artists from Martin Johnson Heade, Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins to Arthur Dove, Elie Nadelman and Jackson Pollock ; 8vo; Signed by Author.
