About this title


A history , in the most compressive seance, of the visual arts produced in what is now the continental United States , Mr. Mendelowiz' book surveys not only American architecture , painting , and sculpture but, in addition, those other arts-printmaking , ceramics , glass , silversmiths, industrial and decorative design, photography -in which distinctive craftsmanship and mastery of technology have given American culture a vigorous heritage and a uniquely rich dimension . In the spirit of the breadth and inclusiveness , the author commences his narrative with an analysis of the arts of American Indian, for their intrinsic merit , as well as for their contribution to the formal values and expectations of modern styles . In the colonial and early republican periods , the emphasis is placed on furniture , silver , and other household wares , for the American decorative arts of this time were truly splendid productions , while the "fine" arts , though closely and sympathetically examined by the author , had yet to receive the full realization of the largest single section n the book , on American art in the twentieth century , a period of myriad styles in which the wide -ranging experimentation with forms and materials has reduced the distintion between the fine and the applied arts to a very thin and tenuous line./THIS IS A GIFT QUALITY BOOK AND MAKE A WONDERFUL GIFT/THE BOOK COMES WITH A PLASTIC MYLAR COVER TO PROTECT THE BOOK FOR YEARS TO COME/FAST SHIPPING TO ALL CORNERS OF THE WORLD/OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE/
