Coming of Age. American Art, 1850's to 1950's

From the 1850's to the 1950's, American art and culture progressed from provincial status to international prominence, and American art transitioned from figurative depictions of the particular to abstract interpretations of univervesal ideals. This beautiful book chronicles this complex century of maturation through an exquisite selection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts.
