KIRKUS REVIEW

A book about the self-taught painters of rural and small town America includes painting from every major private and public collection of folk art in the country, many reproduced here for the first time. In tracing the rise and decline of the folk artist, the authors emphasize his role as social historian. Mary Black is Director of the Museum of Early American Folk Art in New York City; Jean Lipman is Editor of Art in America magazine.
