Editorial Reviews

Review

[Thomas Moran and the Surveying of the American West] significantly enlarges our understanding of how the West was imaged, imagined, and marketed.”—Journal of the West

“By elucidating how his works were part of the larger enterprise of developing and settling the American West, Kinsey contributes a great deal to scholarship on Thomas Moran. . . . Kinsey's book offers the reader valuable insights into the art of Moran, the visual efforts of the Great Surveys, and the complex association of surrounding networks.”—Winterthur Portfolio

Format: Paperback
A bit of a major disappointment for a book with good B/W illustrations, this is a book about one of the great colorist painters of landscape art. Disheartened.

This is one of the most extensive books on Thomas Moran's life. The Smithsonian recently published it (1992). It also has an excellent assortment of pictures of his works. For a complete overview of his work and life, this is the book to have.

I received this book a few days ago as a present because, regrettably, I asked for it. What a disappointment! The text is good. But why buy a book on Moran if not, at least in part, for the illustrations? And in this volume they are terrible. They are all (except the cover) in black and white and poorly reproduced. Moran was a genius with the way he used color and NONNE of that comes across in this book. If this volume is the future of Smithsonian books I will never buy another of theirs. The text is the only reason for giving this book a 2 instead of an otherwise much deserved one.
