American Visions

£4.99

Product description

Writing with all the brilliance, authority and pungent wit that have distinguished his art criticism for Time magazine and his greatly acclaimed study of modern art, The Shock of the New, Robert Hughes now addresses his largest subject: the history of art in America. The intense relationship between the American people and their surroundings has been the source of a rich artistic tradition. American Visions is a consistently revealing demonstration of the many ways in which artists have expressed this pervasive connection. In nine eloquent chapters, which span the whole range of events, movements and personalities of more than three centuries, Robert Hughes shows us the myriad associations between the unique society that is America and the art it has produced.
Published in 1997. There is slight scuffing to the edges of the DJ and cover. Foxing along the top edges of the pages. Well illustrated with 365 illustrations, 323 in full colour. Of interest to artists and art historians.
