Library Journal - Library Journal
Some 105 paintings of 89 artists from the estimable American collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are presented in this beautifully illustrated survey. Ranging from colonial times to the mid-20th century, the collection is rich in portraits, landscapes, and trompe l'oeil paintings. Contrasting styles include the Impressionism of Childe Hassam and the regionalism of Grant Wood. Superb full-page color plates are accompanied by a page of informative but eye-straining text. While the book will not replace the more comprehensive studies of American art, it will appeal to art scholars as well as museum goers wishing to hone their art appreciation skills. Recommended for large collections on American art.-- Stephen Rees, Bucks Cty. Free Lib., Levittown, Pa.
