This book is not your usual cheap Dover edition. The paper used is quality glossy, the images are sharply reproduced with very good value definition. The 44 page introduction by Marilyn Cohen is very well-wriiten, informative, and relates to the plates that follow. Cohen obviously knows a lot about Marsh and the times and people he lived in. She carefully explains the milieu and influences in which Marsh's paintings were developed. The care in which she presents her subject is evident in the footnotes to her introduction.
This book will be of special interest to the artist who is interested in how other artists get from idea to final painting. There are many preliminary sketches presented along with photos that Marsh took and subsequently developed into paintings. My only complaint is that there are only 4 color illustrations (and 2 of them are on the inside jacket covers and not very clear). But that's probably what keeps the cost down. All in all, an interesting book at a low, low price.
I would certainly recommend to others.
