About the book:

This book is concerned with the built environment -- the buildings, transportation, & engineering works around us. Conversion of old structures to contemporary uses, preservation, & ind l. archaeology indicate an awareness of the urban landscape & the effect it has upon us. The artist s function is to examine, digest, & interpret our surroundings. This book includes artists who have responded to this theme, such as Canaletto, Sheeler, Demuth, Burchfield, Turner & Soutine. Examples have been chosen to show how artists of different periods, temperaments, & backgrounds have approached similar subjects or even the same motif. Profusely illustrated.
