THE LIFE AND ART OF CHARLES SCHREYVOGEL

A comprehensive collection of the works of the relatively unknown painter-historian who limned cowboy and Indian conflicts in the American West. He was a contemporary of Frederic Remington, whose angry criticism of Schreyvogel's ""Custer's Demand"" caused a national controversy. The 160 illustrations, including 36 plates in color, reveal Schreyvogel's work to be meticulous in detail and lavish with theatrics. With a documented listing of extant work, an extensive biography, this is interesting Americana but the size--16"" long; 12"" wide--is a nuisance, especially for library shelving.
