Reviews - What do customers think about An American View: Masterpieces from the Brooklyn Museum?

Restoring Faith in American Culture  Nov 24, 2006
With all of the negativity engendered of late throughout the world about the image of America and Americans, this book (a catalogue from the Brooklyn Museum) is as refreshing as a full-scale Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Based on the exhibition AMERICAN VIEW: MASTERPIECES FROM THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM, this beautifully designed and composed book traces American art from 1824 to 2005, the bulk of the contents of the exhibition and catalogue are from the nineteenth century. Written with great clarity by Teresa A Carbone (she even offers a concise chronology for the span of time the exhibition covers), the works of John Singleton Copley, Charles Wilson Peale, Gilbert Stuart, Asher B. Durand, Abbot Handerson Thayer, George Inness, Raphaelle Peale, Edward Hicks, John Singer Sargent and George Bellows are just a few of the artists whose background with illustrations are offered.

Carbone wisely allows the bulk of this catalogue to let the images speak for themselves and the book is primarily composed of full-page reproductions with complementing commentary opposite the image. Strolling through this book is nostalgic, enriching, and rewarding. The publication of this tome could not have come at a better time when our psyches need a bit of positive input! Highly recommended. Grady Harp, November 06
