American impressionismUser Review - Book Verdict
Its first edition (LJ 11/15/84) established this book as the best general source available on American Impressionism. Gerdts (emeritus, art history, CUNY) has added new illustrations as well as a chapter on themes in American Impressionism. His book covers the major artists in the movement, including expatriates working in Europe and regional schools throughout the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He also compares the subject matter of American artists with that of their European counterparts. One of the many strengths of this book is Gerdts's discussion of how Impressionism was interpreted by reviewers and non-impressionist artists at various times during the movement's development in America. The documentation and indexing are both excellent, and the updated bibliography is extensive. The well-chosen illustrations include many full-page color reproductions as well as photographs of many of the artists. Recommended for academic and museum collections and for most public libraries.
