New Hope for American Art based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is fantastic! It is the most comprehensive collection of paintings and information about the New Hope, PA area impressionists and modernists of the 20th century. The quality of the photographs is superb. Jim Alterman has done a wonderful job of seeking out paintings rarely seen by the public. Anyone who is an artist, a collector, a lover of the Bucks County, PA area or simply someone who enjoys looking at beautiful art will love this book. Well worth the price.
I really like this book as a collection of important artists (mostly impressionists) in and around the New Hope Bucks County PA area. I feel the work done by these artists deserves even more attention. The color pictures throughout this book will have you looking for hours.I also like the fact that Alterman included some of the modernists of the time but I was looking for a few more like Stewart Wheeler, Walter Reinsel ..etc to get these other great Philadelphia area artists their due. I originally bought this book because it included John Dull and a few other Philly artists.
