Sunlight and Shadow: The Life and Art of Willard L. Metcalf

New York: Boston University and Abbeville Press, 1987. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. 280pp. Original pictorial dust-jacket over burgundy cloth with gold lettering on spine, and blind-stamped lettering on front cover. Illustrated title page. A founder of "The Ten," a group of American Impressionists, Metcalf is not as well know as many of his fellow artists and indeed, his career was rockier. His art may have revealed a use of rich color enhanced by travels to exotic climes and appearing to best advantage in landscapes of his native New England yet in life he alternated between rebellion and salon adherence. In describing the contrast, this monograph unites important art historical research and appraisal, moving far beyond the hitherto scanty information available on the artist. Magnificently illustrated with 301 color and b/w illustrations, this study is a valuable choice for comprehensive collections on American art. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in very good condition. vg. Item #33150
