About the book:

The pages of this book are from the earliest surviving Colonial paintings, all of them portraits down to the famous Armory Show held in New York in 1913. John Walker sums up the art of these two and a half centuries "There were three outstanding Colonial painters; West, Copley and Stuart. No artist measured up the them until the second half of the nineteenth century, when America produced three more masters of the first rank who worked in Europe: Mary Cassatt, Whistler and Sargent. That same generation brought forth three artists equally distinguished who remained at home: Eakins, Homer and Ryder. The test of this book briliantly proves that these nine painters make the American School illustrious by any standard."
