About this title

Synopsis:

Dust jacket notes: "The name and art of Eric Sloane are synonymous with a vision - a rapturous recall - of America as it used to be: a simpler, quieter country of farms, villages, and crafts. Now in a majestic, outsized volume, Sloane presents an autobiography, a recollection, an album of stunning artwork, a passionate remembrance of the American landscape, and an outspoken defense of our threatened natural heritage. Half a century ago, Sloane, then an itinerant sign painter, set out to see America. The 37 oil paintings in this book depict the landscapes, the villages, the houses - indeed, the spirit of that time; they are vintage Sloane, classic Americana. But in addition to the powerful charm and nostalgia of his recollection, Sloane also presents en passant a report on the decaying American environment - both physical and cultural - and a lament for what we as a people have lost, wasted, or denied. The paintings in this book make a complete art show, which is expected to tour the country as a vivid reminder of our natural heritage."
