"Art in America" is a stunning celebration of American art from colonial times to the present day. Divided into six historical periods, it examines how the art of each era both reflected and contributed to a complex visual narrative of a nation during times of discovery, growth and experimentation. Featuring a superb selection of over 250 iconic and little-known images, this book is a fascinating exploration of how the cultural, political, ethnic, economic and natural landscape of America has shaped national identity and consciousness. An accessible introduction to the major movements in American art, from the Hudson River and Ashcan schools to Abstract Expressionism, Pop art and beyond, "Art in America" features works by a diverse range of artists, from John Singleton Copley, Winslow Homer and Mary Cassatt to Thomas Hart Benton, Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Matthew Barney.
