Hardcover New The images that are often associated with the Ashcan school of artists are the more sombre depictions of working-class life in early twentieth-century New York. ... This subject matter is not, however, representative of the entire spectrum of Ashcan art. Featuring some of the Ashcan school's most vibrant and outstanding works, this book demonstrates unequivocally the zeal with which these artists and their circle embraced the world of play enjoyed by all levels of society. Spirited scenes of diverse leisure activities in cafes, bars and parks, at the theatre, on the beach, at sporting events and in the countryside provide a refreshing look at this important artistic movement.

More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The Ashcan artists' world is usually depicted as the somber, gritty New York City of the early 20th century. Coinciding with a traveling exhibition (Nashville, New York, and Detroit through 2008), this catalog aims to show another side of the Ashcan school, one concerned with the lighter aspects of life-pleasure and amusements, entertainment and society. Here, the artworks of Robert Henri, George Bellows, Edward Hopper, and others feature New Yorkers at leisure. In one essay, independent scholar Valerie Ann Leeds points out the desire of Henri and his circle to paint what they knew best: themselves, their lives, and their surroundings. In another, Marianne Doezema (director, Mount Holyoke Coll. Art Museum) traces the changes in the depiction of woman, from Édouard Manet's Bar at the Follies Bergèreto Henri's Salomto one finally representing an emancipated individual. Other well-qualified scholars discuss such topics as the fine and performing arts and sports and outdoor living. Outstanding illustrations and short biographies of the artists complete this excellent catalog coordinated by Tottis (curator, Detroit Inst. of Arts). Recommended for art and university collections as well as for those dealing with New York history.
