Overview

The seventy paintings, drawings, and prints in this book reflect the tumultuous events that rocked our nation between 1930 and 1970: the Great Depression, World War II, McCarthyism, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War. Art historian Frances K. Pohl examines the works in a chronological context, interweaving eloquent social history with incisive aesthetic criticism, while Phillip J. Schiller's introduction offers insights of a knowledgeable collector deeply committed to the works' humanist theme. Independent curator Andrea Swanson Honore's carefully researched biographies of the artists enhance the book's value as an important scholarly reference.

This is the ultimate calendar for anyone who is smitten with the natural beauty of our bovine friends. Photographer David Winston manages to catch cows in their most revealing moments.
