Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A 19th-century painter of landscapes, seascapes, birds, and flowers, Heade received only moderate critical recognition during his lifetime. In the past 50 years, however, he has gained recognition as a major contributor to American representational art--owing in part to Stebbins's efforts to reawaken interest in Heade. This catalog accompanies a Heade retrospective that will travel, over the next ten months, to Boston, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles. It includes biographical information about the artist, chapters on each type of subject he painted, a history of Heade criticism and scholarship, and a close analysis of his painting technique. The lovely color reproductions and accessible text, along with solid scholarship, make this volume suitable for both public and academic libraries.
