'The author shows how it is no longer possible to dismiss American painting as the poor cousin of Western art. Indeed, early American painters soon developed an independent style characterised by its fastidious naturalism. This naturalism recurs throughout the history of American painting, from the early portraits and those of John Singleton Copley to the Photo-realists of the 1970's. In the 19th century, America produced two remarkable schools of her own: the Luminists and the trompe l'oeil still-life painters. Long underrated, these works are now beginning to be recognised as making a unique contribution to the history of Western art'. -Inside flap. This 1973 Hamlyn Hardcover is in Very Good condition.
