Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Though not as well known as her contemporary Mary Cassatt, Beaux was in fact the most famous American woman artist of the nineteenth century. These essays are excellent resources for those teaching and writing about nineteenth-century American art."—Cécile Whiting, author of Pop L.A.: Art and the City in the 1960s

By N. Thornton on December 14, 2007
Format: Hardcover
While Cecilia Beaux is often overlooked, she was a great American figure painter, close to, if not quite in the same league, as John Singer Sargent. This book has good representation of her work, the more well know, and the lesser. A must have of anyone who is a fan of this period and style of art.

A number of years ago I enrolled into an art history course at my local community college, Women in Art. I was suprised, awed and sorry never to have known about some of the women artists when studying art at a university. Shadwoed by the likes of John Singer Sargent, Cecila Beaux can hold her own. Many female artists did not have the same advantages as their male counterparts. But Ms. Beaux built up her own cliental making her own name in the art of portraiture. This is a nice book depicitng the lifestylies of Americana during the age of innocence. A must have for any coffee table. Nice instruction on another American female artisits almost lost in history.

Though thorough, the many author's perspectives were not pleasing. Beautiful work by an amazing artist and the reproductions were acceptable but not thrilling.
