About This Item

Doubleday & Company, NY, 1980. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. "America's Old Masters' comprises biographies of the four painters who in the eighteenth century earned the earliest international acclaim for American art... Benjamin West, who openly supported the cause of the American colonists, was the intimate friend of George III. John Singleton Copley, so timid he never made a personal friend, braved the wrath of the mob by trying to stop the Boston Tea Party. Charles Wilson Peale, a Yankee jack-of-all-trades, set up the first mastodon skeleton ever seen by modern man. Gilbert Stuart, a Tory, a debtor, a wastral, a respecter of no man, painted the classic portraits of George Washington. The interrelationships between their adventures, their personalities, and the art they created is presented and analyzed in 'America's Old Masters" [Dust Jacket] There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST THUS.
