Editorial Reviews

This reference features about 140 profiles of American painters, sculptors, and other artists from genres including impressionism, abstract expressionism, regionalism, cubism, pop and folk art, minimalism, American regionalism, and precisionism. The articles introduce the high school student to the life and times of artists from the U.S. who have risen to the top in their field, providing not only historical information but also an insight into the artists' perseverance, determination, and triumphs and struggles. Each biography contains a timeline, and many include a b&w photograph of the artist or one of his or her works. The articles are arranged alphabetically and were chosen in terms of relevance to the curriculum, importance to history, and representation of as broad a cultural range as possible. Annotation c.
