Fine. 0876544855 Prior owner's name inscribed at front endpaper. Else as new. Except for Wood's famous painting American Gothic, the world outside of Iowa seems to have forgotten the work of this unique artist, whose name was once almost a household word. This new book, the catalog of the traveling exhibition Grant Wood: An American Master Revealed, mounted by the Davenport Museum of Art, takes a bold step toward reversing this trend. Richly illustrated with approximately sixty paintings and preparatory studies by the artist, it examines Wood's modernist tendencies, ranging from his abstract desian principles to the lasting influence of paintings by Georges Seurat and German Neue Sachlichkeit artists. The book also provides the most detailed account available of the artist's working methods, with the first systematic technical analysis ever to be undertaken, prepared by conservation experts from across the country. Illustrations include Grant Wood's finest works, such as American Gothic; Arnold Comes of Age; Stone City, Iowa; Dinner for Threshers; Spring Turning; Iowa Cornfield; and over fifty more of his compelling compositions. Authors include Brady M. Roberts, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at the Davenport Museum of Art, Iowa; James M. Dennis, Professor of Art History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of Grant Wood: A Study in American Art and Culture; James S. Horns, a private conservator in Minneapolis with extensive experience in treating Grant Wood paintings; and Helen Mar Parkin, a private conservator in Cincinnati, Ohio, with expertise in American paintings. 128 pages.
