View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Early Art and Artists in West Virginia is copiously illustrated with 136 plates accompanying the essays on portraiture and landscape painting, which form the first half of the book. A similar number of smaller illustrations in full color bring life to a biographical directory in the second part of the book, which contains nearly one thousand known painters who worked in West Virginia. Many West Virginians will find their family names in this directory, and some will doubtless locate the information here that they have long sought in order to learn more about a painting in their family's possession. The book is supported by an extensive bibliography on the state's artistic heritage and a full index to both the directory and the essays.

About the Author:

John A. Cuthbert is Curator of the West Virginia and Regional History Collection and Director of the West Virginia Historical Art Collection at the West Virginia University Libraries. A graduate of Worcester State College, the university of Massachusetts, and West Virginia University, he has written extensively on the history of the arts in West Virginia and the Central Appalachian region.

Review:

"Early Art and Artists in West Virginia provides an impressive body of research, well-written and well-documented. I see this as an excellent example of a growing number of studies in which individual states are recording their artistic heritages, and none is perhaps more varied or interesting than West Virginia's."
Jessie Poesch, author The Art of the Old South

"With modesty, Cuthbert... describes his study as 'only a beginning.' Most will agree that this is far more than that; for the foreseeable future, it will be the undisputed reference on the subject."
Joan Stahl, The Smithsonian American Art Museum

"...an incredible collection."
Bill Archer, The Bluefield Daily Telegraph

"No one who spends time with Cuthbert's book will ever doubt that West Virginia has a long and active artistic tradition."
John DouglasThe Morgan Messenger
