Martin Johnson Heade: A Survey: 1840-1900by University of Washington Press, Timothy A. Eaton
Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904) was under-appreciated during his lifetime, forgotten in death, and rediscovered four decades later, yet today he is recognized as one of the most important artists America has produced. This book surveys Heade's long and diverse career and includes examples of his portraits, landscapes, hummingbirds, still lifes, and flowers.
Heade's history is vague; he was an artist who wrote often and copiously, but seldom about his own work or himself. Although his work will continue to be researched and his philosophical and aesthetic concerns speculated on, he will, nevertheless, remain enigmatic.
