Small Victories: One Couple's Surprising Adventures Collecting American Prints (Hardcover)
An illustrated journey through American prints, illuminated by the victories, defeats and discoveries of two intrepid collectors. For more than four decades, Dave H. Williams and Reba White built the most comprehensive treasury of American prints ever assembled. Their 6,000 prints cover the expected iconic images but also artists and entire schools of art that have been unknown or routinely ignored--the regionalists who worked on the shores of Cape Cod and California, in Dallas and Charleston, as well as the Ashcan School of New York. Here are hundreds of WPA artists, supported by the government during the Depression, as well are the masterpieces of Bellows and Homer, Lewis and Sloan. Illustrated in full color, this is among the indispensable and totally original print reference books.
