Richly illustrated and thoroughly researched, this volume showcases one of the most significant collections of American art assembled in the twenty-first century and one that has helped transform the Chrysler Museum into a national leader in the exhibition, study, and appreciation of American art. The Macon and Joan Brock Collection spans nearly one hundred years, from just after the Civil War to the mid-twentieth century. Works by a wide range of artists, from Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, and John Singer Sargent to Marsden Hartley, Max Weber, and George Bellows, chart a broad history of American art. Less well-known figures such as Mary Fairchild MacMonnies, Helen Corson Hovenden, and Sally Michel bolster the rich depth of the collection and propose new contours to the shape of American art history. Together the works included in the volume and their scholarly commentaries offer a fresh look at one of the most vital and dynamic periods of American art.
