About this title


The catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Portrait Gallery, October 9, 1987 through January 10, 1988. 117 portraits are described and illustrated, 35 in color.

From Library Journal:

The portrait ranked far and away as the favored art form in colonial America. Through two general essays and 117 individual entries the authors of this exhibition catalog examine the careers and output of artists working in early America as well as the role of their sitters in colonial society. A pleasant and somewhat unexpected surprise is the presence of period sources such as engravings, an art manual, and artists' notebooks, documentation rarely included in such exhibitions. While this is thorough and fact-filled, Wayne Craven's Colonial American Portraiture ( LJ 12/86) displays greater integration and a more thematic approach.Kathleen Eagen Johnson, Historic Hudson Valley, Tarrytown, N.Y.
