In these pages you will find the portion of the famous and celebrated Wadsworth Atheneum Museum's collection that has been on tour across the United States. Each art piece is reproduced with outstanding quality and a brief biography of the artist along with a incredible analysis of the piece itself. If ever there was a period in the art world where subliminal items were included on the canvas, this was it. This guide will reveal all those nuances and allow the reader to perceive a new dimension to the artworks presented. These are just not 'pretty' works of art. In many cases there were powerful statements of the current events of the time. Most people could not read, but they could all understand the imagery that was presented.Was this review helpful?
