As the selection includes those paintings from each artist owned by the Wadsworth, readers may not necessarily find the most famous examples of each man's work. However, the selection on offer is wide ranging and superb, featuring early American landscapes mixed with others from Europe and South America. The collection is easily worth the attention of fans of the Hudson River School and highly recommended to them and to students of that genre.
This is a quality piece of work: bound in green linen cloth with a sewn binding, a heavy dustjacket, and a very satisfying level of reproduction. And it isn't a "coffee table" book with semi-cheap too-glossy illustrations that weighs 6 pounds. Text accompanies each image: biographical and aesthetic background on the painter and/or the painting's location, historical significance, influences, forebearers, critical reception...
Ultimately this is a book about American art and ways of seeing and understanding the American frontier, more than it is a little trot through some pretty pictures.
