This anthology brings together twenty works of recent scholarship on the history of the visual arts in the United States from the colonial period to 1945. The selected essays - all written within the past two decades - reflect the interdisciplinary character of current art historiography in America and the variety of approaches that contribute to the dynamism in the field. The authors take up diverse subject - from colonial portraits to nineteenth-century sculptures of women to photographic images of New York - and invite those with a general knowledge of the history of American art to think more deeply about art and culture.

Jeffrey Hayes

A much needed, thoughtfully chosen array of influential essays that will introduce students to the many ways of approaching American art.
