Offering fresh insight into the art of Edward Henry Potthast (1857–1927), Eternal Summer features over one hundred works, covering the full range of the artist’s oeuvre.

A technical study of Potthast’s paintings provides an invaluable resource for museums, collectors, and dealers, and a detailed illustrated chronology traces his full career. This lavishly illustrated volume offers a unique opportunity to consider Potthast—Cincinnati native and American Impressionist.
