- Pub. Date:
- University of California Press
“The season's most impressive art book, Yosemite is aptly subtitled Art of an American Icon. . . . In addition to the spectacular illustrations—the chapter on the early photographers includes some breath-taking panoramas—Yosemite boasts some unusually astute and readable analyses by a half-dozen guest scholars.
“A wonderful walk down art history lane while still being a balanced and fair assessment of Yosemite’s complexities. . . . And for the first time, in one single gorgeous volume, we can delight in a complete and wide-ranging artistic view of its wonder, power and mystery.
“Yosemite includes equally striking landscapes and related artworks in a variety of media, ranging from such early paintings as Albert Bierstadt’s otherworldly 1868 painting Sunset in the Yosemite Valley, to David Hockney’s photo-collage Merced River, Yosemite Valley, Sept. 1982.
“This beautifully illustrated volume paints a new picture of Yosemite’s visual history.
