Allen Tupper True: An American Artist
This, the first definitive biography of Allen Tupper True, traces the artist's life from his earliest beginnings in Colorado. The book relies on letters, diaries, and contemporary news accounts as well as family history to describe True's artistic evolution from illustrator to easel painter to muralist of the first order. Written by True's daughter Jere True and his granddaughter Victoria Tupper Kirby, the book has the charm of a personal memoir that is greatly enhanced by its scholarly underpinnings and lavish illustrations. The story of Allen Tupper True's life and work is truly an American story that deserves to take its place in the panoply of American art history.
