Overview

A distinguished line-up of scholars from America and the UK consider the complex history of artistic relations between Britain and the USA, covering the years from the colonial period to the 1960s. The book presents a series of significant essays on artists including Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, Frederic Church, Georgia O’Keeffe and David Hockney, and addresses subjects such as the First World War, Pop Art, the Camden Town Group and Ashcan School, the legacies of slavery, and transatlantic travel.

In the introduction, the editors analyse the nature and transformation of Anglo-American artistic interactions, and situate the relationship in the context of recent scholarship on comparative global art histories. Taking a comparative view of the shifting Anglo-American artistic relationship, this book opens new avenues of research in the art history of both Britain and America.
