Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This worthy companion to William Gerdts's Art Across America: The South (LJ 12/90) and Estill Curtis Pennington's Look Away: Reality and Sentiment in Southern Art (LJ 12/89) showcases 237 works, mostly 20th-century representational paintings, from the rich and diverse collection of New Orleans entrepreneur Roger Ogden. While recognizing the pitfalls of pigeonholing all visual arts produced in the South, Delehanty, former curator of the collection, convincingly organizes such catalog themes as landscapes, marine paintings, flora and fauna, still lifes, rural and cityscapes, portraits, and spirituality. Of 150 artists represented, studio and academic practitioners are balanced against folk and outsider artists. Informative captions, color reproductions, and sources for information about each artist add appeal and usefulness. Highly recommended for regional collections and all academic art collections.-Russell T. Clement, Univ. of Tennessee Lib., Knoxville
