"American Art: History and Culture" is a thorough and engaging chronology of American art, including painting, sculpture, architecture, decorative arts, photography, folk art, and graphic arts.

Wayne Craven presents art and artists within the context of their times, including insights into the intellectual, spiritual, and political environment. Along the way Craven charts the growth of a distinctly American art culture. The resulting book is as much a history of American culture as of American art.
