Description
The Metropolitan Museum of Art began acquiring American drawings in 1880 and has since amassed a spectacular collection of more than 1400 works in watercolor, pastel, ink, graphite, chalk, and charcoal. This beautifully produced catalog, selected by Choice Magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2003, reproduces works by John Singleton Copley, Thomas Cole, George Inness, and other important artists in 106 color plates, including James Abbott McNeill Whistler's Lady in Gray and Enoch Wood Perry's A Month's Darning. Here too is a checklist of the complete collection of early works on paper, with 430 black and white illustrations and brief artist biographies.

"Many years in the making, this impressive work on early American drawings and watercolors in the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection can finally take its place in the museum's remarkable list of collection catalogs.... Extremely well written and chock-full of information."Library Journal
