About This Item

Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin, 1941. 1st . Hardcover. Very Good/Good. previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown, dust jacket with chipping at head and foot of spine, corners, and top edge of back panel, fading to spine. <p>For well over a hundred years, before the days of photography, itinerant painters wandered through the American countryside with a roll of canvas and brushes and palette strapped to their backs, to perpetuate the faces of the living, and sometimes of the dead, with their crude, spontaneous artistry. This book -- the first in its field -- tells the story of New England folk portraits and of the artists who made them. It is illustrated with one hundred and ten excellent reproductions of folk portraits.</p>
