Publishers Weekly, 1996-02-12 From prehistoric pottery to modern expressionism, the 48 artworks reproduced here with facing-page commentaries provide a stunning panorama of the American West. Pictures by familiar favorites who shaped popular romantic images of the West, such as George Catlin, Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Remington, jostle with little-known realistic masterpieces like English artist Frank Marryat's hand-colored lithograph of boomtown San Francisco in 1849, or Joseph Becker's starkly beautiful oil painting of a locomotive crossing the snowy Sierra Nevada mountains. Also here are Native Americans' strong pictorial statements, including Kicking Bear's intricate rendition of the Battle of Little Big Horn (ca. 1895); Cheyenne warrior Howling Wolf's ink-and-watercolor of a medicine lodge sun dance (1875); and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith's devastating, ghostlike collage, Buffalo (1992). Bitingly ironic modern paintings by Ben Shahn, Red Grooms and David Hockney turn inside-out the imagined reality of the West. Wilderness magazine editor Watkins wrote The Great Depression, for which his wife, Joan Parker Watkins, was picture consultant. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
