What's American about American art? Henry Adams, author of definitive biographies of Thomas Hart Benton and Thomas Eakins, examines 60 important works from the collection of a major American museum, and comes up with some surprising answers. This prominent art historian finds unexpected diversity in a discussion that ranges from Native American artifacts to the work of Jackson Pollock. Profusely illustrated with many iconic images from the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, including works of John Singleton Copley, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, George Bellows, Marsden Hartley, and Georgia O'Keefe, among many others.
