About this title

Synopsis:

A brief introduction to the artist's life prefaces a facsimile volume of the sketchbook drawn between 1892 and 1897

From Library Journal:

This sketchbook, kept primarily between 1895 and 1897, is an exquisite example of the working technique of a great American artist. In it, Prendergast experiments with pattern, shadow, and foliage, using the beautiful Boston Public Garden as his studio. The 88 pages of watercolors, pen and ink, and pencil drawings focus on the colorfully dressed women and children in the park, with glimpses of Victorian Boston outside. The sketchbookreproduced here in facsimile and handsomely boxedrecalls his years of study in Paris, yet foreshadows his bold mature style. Recommended for comprehensive art collections.
