Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ms. Evans follows Stuart's career, commenting simply and sensibly on possible influences and the development of his increasingly subtle technique. . . . Perhaps the most notable point about Stuart is his ambition, in which he succeeded, to convey the sitter's blood and breath and spiritual animation through the motionless surface of paint and canvas."--Phoebe-Lou Adams, The Atlantic Monthly

From the Inside Flap

"At last, we have a modern art history of the most gifted, significant, and influential artist of the Federal period. . . . The book pulls a universally admired artist out of the shadows and should be the authoritative source for the future."--Paul Staiti, Mount Holyoke College

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well-researched and well-written book. Dorinda Evans Brings this great American artist to life using anecdotes and lots of pertinent illustrations. She paints a picture of his life beginning as a budding young artist in Rhode Island, through to his study abroad, then back in the states to capture the likenesses of the great leaders of the fledgling republic.
