KIRKUS REVIEW

Very specialized in market, this thorough going study of early American painting, its European backgrounds, the development of the native trends with the Revolution. The biographical material (Smibert, Feke, Copley and West) is secondary to the study of their work and their contribution to the establishment of an American art. Illustrated with a great number of black and white reproductions, carefully captioned.
