The canvases of Eastman Johnson (1824-1906) are among the icons of American art. One of the most important painters of the nineteenth century, Johnson is as remarkable for his insight on American culture as for his artistic originality.

Eastman Johnson: Painting America is an unprecedented look at Johnson's remarkable oeuvre. Insightful essays discuss, among other topics, Johnson's groundbreaking African-American subjects, his reinvigoration of domestic themes, and his codification of American "types." Also included is a generous selection of Johnson's extraordinary letters.

Published in conjunction with the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Eastman Johnson accompanies the first major museum retrospective devoted to the artist in more than twenty-five years. This volume is the most comprehensive source of reproductions of the artist's work available.
