With the publication of "American Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts", readers will be captivated by in-depth, scholarly essays and images highlighting selected works by such outstanding artists as John James Audubon, Thomas Hart Benton, Mary Cassatt, Frederic Edwin Church, John Singleton Copley, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Fitz Henry Lane, Georgia O'Keeffe, Charles Willson Peale, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, John Singer Sargent, William Welmore Story, Henry Ossawa Tanner, and James McNeill Whistler. Also featured are decorative objects by well-known individuals and firms, including John Henry Belter, the Goddard-Townsend group, Herter Brothers, Paul Revere, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Frank Lloyd Wright. "American Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts" features a comprehensive introduction tracing the evolution of the VMFA's American collection, the history and unique character of the museum as a public-private entity overseen by the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the developing cultural milieu of Richmond.
More than one hundred essays that survey key eras encompassed by the VMFA's holdings - Colonial and Revolutionary, Early Republic and Jacksonian, Antebellum, Civil War and Centennial, Gilded Age, Early Modern, and the Interwar Years - provide a context for the lushly illustrated works, and celebrate, in words and images, the largest expansion in the VMFA's history.
