Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a good, cheap book on Marsh, this is the book for you. Reginald Marsh was a social-realist artist in New York during the 1930s. While at first glance, Marsh seems to work in the style of Daumier, as this book shows he also was influenced by the more traditional old masters, particularly Rubens.
This book is not your usual cheap Dover edition. The paper used is quality glossy, the images are sharply reproduced with very good value definition. The 44 page introduction by Marilyn Cohen is very well-wriiten, informative, and relates to the plates that follow. Cohen obviously knows a lot about Marsh and the times and people he lived in. She carefully explains the milieu and influences in which Marsh's paintings were developed. The care in which she presents her subject is evident in the footnotes to her introduction.
This book will be of special interest to the artist who is interested in how other artists get from idea to final painting. There are many preliminary sketches presented along with photos that Marsh took and subsequently developed into paintings. My only complaint is that there are only 4 color illustrations (and 2 of them are on the inside jacket covers and not very clear). But that's probably what keeps the cost down. All in all, an interesting book at a low, low price.

A wonderful retrospective of this talented artist, who made the "underclass of New York" and the depression days very vivid. a pictorial history which is now on my cocktail table.

The catalog arrived quickly, was well-packed and exceeded my expectations regarding its condition quality (since it was "used").
I would certainly recommend to others.

When the used book I purchased was not available immediately, I was promptly notified and given a new expected date of arrival. The book was delivered in the promised excellent condition well within the new delivery date window. I appreciated the courteous and reliable service that was provided.
