9780300175806: Expressions of Innocence and Eloquence: Selections from the Jane Katcher Collection of Americana, Volume II

This handsome book, the second volume of selections from the Jane Katcher Collection, presents a superlative group of American folk and decorative arts created primarily in New England, New York, and Pennsylvania in the 18th and 19th centuries. It contains more than one hundred recent acquisitions, including a masterpiece of American basketry woven in Nevada by the renowned Louise Keyser (also known as Dat So La Lee) in 1913.

Familiar categories of Americana—portraits, quilts, weathervanes, boxes, trade signs, miniature portraits, schoolgirl art, furniture, and Shaker objects—are joined here by new directions in collecting, represented by objects such as love tokens, friendship albums, and rewards of merit. Noted scholars discuss the historical, economic, and social context in which the objects were created, as well as their aesthetic qualities and their makers' craft methods. Lavishly illustrated with 470 color illustrations, this book, like its companion volume, is essential for anyone interested in American folk art, Shaker craft, early American furniture, and Native American artistry.

Review:

“A stunning array of folk masterpieces”—Paul S. D’Ambrosio, Antiques and Fine Art (Paul S. D'Ambrosio Antiques and Fine Art)

“A richly visual, painstakingly assembled tribute to the accidental genius of vernacular art.”—Laura Beach, Antiques and the Arts Weekly (Laura Beach Antiques and the Arts Weekly)

“...keeps words and pictures in balance, offering further excursions into an outstanding private collection...the essays proceed in close-up, singling out individual objects and the people who made or used them, often with fresh and revelatory specificity.”—Roberta Smith, New York Times (Holiday Gift Guide selection) (Roberta Smith New York Times)

“A journey through one of the most exquisite collections of Americana . . . a monumental achievement . . . a volume that all serious books about the decorative arts should aspire to. Its visual narrative and written cadence create a sentimental journey accompanied by the most necessary of traveling companions: thoughtfulness and critical reflection.”—Joanne Molina, The Curated Object (Joanne Molina The Curated Object)

“Splendid . . . essential to any serious library of Americana and decorative arts.”—Barrymore Laurence Scherer, The Magazine Antiques (Barrymore Laurence Scherer The Magazine Antiques)

“Full of nuggets of information that make for good armchair reading . . . [and] brilliant photographs.”—Lita Solis Cohen, Maine Antique Digest (Lita Solis Cohen Maine Antique Digest)

“Intriguing . . . fascinating . . . will satisfy even the most astute folk art collector and stoke the curiosity of any history buff. . . . An essential volume for a library of early Americana.”—Julie Carlson Wildfeuer, American Fine Art (Julie Carlson Wildfeuer American Fine Art)
