Summary
"Founded 75 years ago, the Butler houses one of the premiere collections in American art. Butler's story is a classic: a Youngstown, Ohio, industrialist with no formal art training, he was a visionary who recognized the importance of American art when most museums were still focused on Europe. After his first collection was destroyed by fire, he assembled the nucleus of the current collection between 1917 and 1919. This volume features such masterworks as Winslow Homer's "Snap the Whip," Fitz Hugh Lane's "Ship Starlight," and Thomas Cole's "Italian Landscape." The artists represented range from John Singleton Copley to Chuck Close, with lesser known yet substantial artists given equal space. Altogether 75 established and rising scholars contributed short essays on each artist. The emphasis here is not on the place of the Butler institute in the history of American art but on the master paintings themselves, which results in a refreshing, inspiring volume."--Library Journal
