Description
Beautifully illustrated with 293 photos and reproductions, this catalog from the American Folk Art Museum celebrates the symbols of liberty, ingenuity, and national identity embedded in American folk art from colonial days through the present. From log cabin quilts and painted wood furniture to watercolors and oil paintings; from Hosea Hayden's idiosyncratic folding chairs to the drawings of octogenarian street artist and former slave Bill Traylor; from Girl in Red Dress with Cat and Dog, the masterpiece of 19th-century ancestral portrait artist Ammi Phillips, to works by contemporary self-taught artist Thornton Dial Sr., each of these works is a touchstone to American culture.

"Featuring art from the Colonial period to the present, this book represents the second major exhibition at the new building of the American Folk Art Museum in New York.... Spectacular illustrations are sandwiched between erudite essays that define this very inclusive collection, which offers everything from paintings, quilts, and weather vanes to furniture and contemporary works by self-taught artists. Also included are extensive notes on each piece that are both interesting and informative.... The work of Horace Pippin, Grandma Moses, and Ammi Phillips is right alongside that of Henry Darger and Bill Traylor, bringing together in one source the genuine 'big picture' of self-taught art in America over time."Library Journal
