About this title


Many consider that America's most original contribution to art is the medium of watercolor, as no other country can boast of watercolorists of such inventiveness and brilliance as, among others, Sargent, Homer, LaFarge, Prendergast, Demuth, Marin, Burchfield, and Hopper. Awash in Color features the most beautiful watercolors in the impressive collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The authors survey the development of the medium and discuss each painting to provide, in aggregate, a history of American watercolors that has become the standard reference on the subject.-- Unavailable since 1994, the paperback edition will bring this valuable collection back into print.-- Many of America's favorite painters are included (fifty-eight artists), with special emphasis on Winslow Homer, Maurice Prendergast, and John Singer Sargent.-- A beautiful art book, with unusually luxurious specifications, featuring superb color reproductions of 125 paintings, plus details.
