Offering a fresh perspective on American art from the first half of the 20th century, this elegant book presents approximately 200 paintings, works on paper, photographs, and sculpture by such artists as Ansel Adams, Milton Avery, Walker Evans, Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, Ben Shahn, Paul Strand, and Grant Wood, along with works by other well-known and less-familiar artists. All the works are reproduced in stunning full-color and duotone plates. These works have been brought together for a traveling exhibition organized through F.R.A.M.E., a major artistic exchange program between the United States and France. This book, published to accompany the inaugural exhibition of the program, includes texts by French and American art historians that place the works in art-historical context.
