Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Ream’s intellect, artistic talents, indomitable will, seductiveness, and grand ambitions were already evident when she was a teenager newly arrived in Washington, D.C. in 1861 … Endlessly intriguing …  Kudos to Cooper for resurrecting Ream and enriching so vividly the history of women in art.”  -- Donna Seaman, Booklist

“A sharply focused biography, which skillfully exploits unpublished papers, journals and scrapbooks of Vinnie Ream …”
-- David Herbert Donald, New York Review of Books
