About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Hiesinger, Ulrich W.

From Library Journal:

Noted art historian Hiesinger chronicles the rise of Impressionism in America through the works of the group of American painters known as The Ten who "fundamentally altered the relationship of the artist to his audience." These painters included Childe Hassam, William Merritt Chase, Thomas Wilmer Dowing, and Edmund Charles Tarbell. The canvases of The Ten, who never became a formal school, range from scenes of domestic life to the depiction of bridges and factories to allegories, presented here in 89 vivid color plates and 77 black-and-white illustrations and accompanied by contemporary photographs. The informative text, which depicts their struggle for recognition, acceptance, and eventual decline as the avant-garde, is amply footnoted and illuminated by quotes from the artists themselves and from their peers. An appendix includes biographies, a chronology, and a bibliography. Both a serious study and a delightful stroll through a gallery of seminal paintings, this book is recommended for most collections.
