John Singleton Copley in Americaby Carrie Rebora Barratt, Paul Staiti, Erica E. Hirshler
This book, which accompanies an important exhibition of Copley's work organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is the first major study of the artist published since 1966. Like the exhibition, it focuses on the large-scale paintings, miniatures, and pastels Copley executed before he moved to London, on the theory that his American oeuvre is unified by the circumstances of it's production and is stylistically and intellectually distinct from his English pictures.
Lavish illustrations of the paintings, pastels, and miniatures in the exhibition; comparative works; maps; and photographs accompany the texts. A chronology, a bibliography that includes references of general and specific interest, and an index are included.
