Review

Davidson has written the first true, full-length monograph on an artist who was one of America's best-known painters at the turn of the 20th century. --Choice

Blakelock is an artist who provides a fascinating excursion around the major schools and traditions of American painting of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. His purpose is to bring to light a significant but relatively neglected artist through meticulous analysis of his life and paintings, as well as the literary, sociological, psychological, and even religious phenomena which might have served as an inspiration. Abraham Davidson has made an excellent job of the difficult task of combining biography and artistic analysis. --Jeanne Chenault Porter, Penn State University

Format: Hardcover
An interesting artist and a good book, I recommend both, but not at $91. I bought a copy (it must be said, several years ago) for around $20.

Blakelock is a very overlooked genius whose work is incredibly interesting and a plastic precursor to American Abstraction since the 20's. This book is amazing and far more extensive then any other on the artist. It is a treasure.
