Editorial Reviews

Review


"In 'Industrial Sublime: Modernism and the Transformation of New York's Rivers,01900-1940'. viewers can share the excitement - maybe even the ecstasy - that these painters felt as they confronted both the urban maelstrom and the new ways of setting it down." -The New York Times


"The more than 150 images in this gorgeous collection includes bridges, tugs, waterfront shacks, skyscrapers and smokestacks from artists such as Robert Henri, John Sloan, Georgia O'Keeffe and Edward Ault." -New York Post


"Several critical writings accompanying full-color reproductions of all the works-including some with details nicely enlarged-along with short biographies of each artist that further enhances the experience of readers unable to have seen the show in person." -Rain Taxi Review of Books

You always take a chance when ordering show catalogs, sight unseen. This one does not disappoint! I keep it on my coffee table and pick it up often to peruse.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Madwoman in the Attic on July 3, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Both the concept and the art created a wonderful exhibit that motivated us to buy the catalogue. When I opened it, I was shocked to see that there were three grammatical errors on the first page of text. Although we finally figured out the different numbering system for the illustrations, it would have been nice to have a guide. That said, the subject matter and the illustrations are thrilling, and the text interesting and informative.
