About this title

Synopsis:

Traces the life of the neglected American artist, shows a selection of his portraits, landscapes, and nudes, and reassesses his place in modern art

From Library Journal:

Duveneck (1848-1919), most famous for his "vigorous brushwork and bravura technique," received high praise as a portrait and landscape painter, etcher, and teacher, yet his reputation suffered greatly after his death. Some prominent American critics considered him little more than an able technician. Also, a number of his dark, opaque paintings proved physically unstable. Neuhaus weighs the artist's strengths and limitations and presents a more balanced view. The volume's format allows for the comfortable arrangement of the text, 53 black-and-white illustrations, 45 handsome color plates, and research aids. Recommended for American art history collections. Kathleen Eagen Johnson, Sleepy Hollow Restorations, Tarrytown, N.Y.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
