Editorial Reviews

Review

Ms. Evans follows Stuart's career, commenting simply and sensibly on possible influences and the development of his increasingly subtle technique. . . . Perhaps the most notable point about Stuart is his ambition, in which he succeeded, to convey the sitter's blood and breath and spiritual animation through the motionless surface of paint and canvas.
(Phoebe-Lou Adams The Atlantic Monthly)

Review

At last, we have a modern art history of the most gifted, significant, and influential artist of the Federal period. . . . The book pulls a universally admired artist out of the shadows and should be the authoritative source for the future.
(Paul Staiti, Mount Holyoke College)

I found the writing to be clear and lively. Most important, the facts are reliable and presented in a orderly manner.

This is a well-researched and well-written book. Dorinda Evans Brings this great American artist to life using anecdotes and lots of pertinent illustrations. She paints a picture of his life beginning as a budding young artist in Rhode Island, through to his study abroad, then back in the states to capture the likenesses of the great leaders of the fledgling republic.
