Closely associated with artists such as T. C. Steele and J. Ottis Adams, William J. Forsyth studied at the Royal Academy in Munich then returned home to paint what he knew best―the Indiana landscape. It proved a rewarding subject. His paintings were exhibited nationally and received major awards. With full-color reproductions of Forsyth’s most important paintings and previously unpublished photographs of the artist and his work, this book showcases Forsyth’s fearless experiments with artistic styles and subjects. Drawing on his personal letters and other sources, Rachel Berenson Perry discusses Forsyth and his art and offers fascinating insights into his personality, his relationships with his students, and his lifelong devotion to teaching and educating the public about the importance of art.

About the Author:

Rachel Berenson Perry is Emeritus Curator of Fine Arts at the Indiana State Museum and author of Barry Gealt, Embracing Nature (IUP, 2012); T. C. Steele and the Society of Western Artists, 1896-1914 (IUP, 2009); and Children from the Hills: The Life and Work of Ada Walter Shulz.

Review:

This meticulously researched and gorgeously illustrated book captures the full arc of the life and work of William Forsyth, who, with this engrossing study by Rachel Berenson Perry, at last receives the limelight that is his due. Forsyth―irascible, competitive, proud, and completely committed to his art―comes vividly to life in Rachel Perry’s book. . . . Enlivened throughout with excellent color illustrations and vintage photos, William Forsyth: The Life and Work of an Indiana Artist, provides much more than its title indicates. Perry has given the reader a vivid, intimate encounter with a fascinating human being, whose passions, aspirations, frustrations, and sorrows continue to resonate. (Linda Baden Associate Director for Editorial Services, Indiana University Art Museum)

Rachel Perry, today’s leading author on Indiana art hands down, has added this avidly awaited biography of William Forsyth to her eminently readable and thoroughly researched chronicles. Here is a much needed appreciation of the diminutive, pugnacious painter, full of humor, pathos, devotion and plain cussedness as he faced the challenge of living as an artist in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Indiana. (Martin Krause Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the Indianapolis Museum of Art)
