From Library Journal:

Like its companion, American Folk Portraits ( LJ 10/15/81), this volume is a handsome and scholarly product of exacting research. The subject ranges from landscapes and scenes of everyday life to decorated family records and paper cutwork. Each of the nearly 400 works of art, all drawn from this museum, is represented by a photograph, discussion of the object, and detailed notes concerning inscriptions, provenance, exhibition history, and the like. Carolyn J. Weekley's wide-ranging yet concise essay on a definition of American folk art serves ably as the introduction. Why can't more books on the topic be both as valuable a resource and as beautiful? Highly recommended for art and most public libraries.
