Offered in this lot is this First Edition of "American Impressionism" by William H. Gerdts 1984 Artabras Publishers, New York. Lavishly illustrated with more than 400 paintings by 125 different artists, this volume contains documentary photographs of the artists and quotations from their private letters and journals complementing the text. Beginning with a brief prelude discussing the roots of Impressionism in America and its relationship to French Impressionism, Gerdts recounts the early adventures of American artists in Claude Monet's village of Giverny, evaluates Impressionism's progress from an avant-garde aesthetic to its triumph during the 1813 Chicago World Fair and its replacement by the radical styles of Cubism and Futurism. Also studies how Impressionism flourished across the United States and includes an exhaustive bibliography. All the masterworks are here, from Childe Hassam's sun-drenched gardens to John Twachtman's snow-silenced landscapes, from Edmund Tarbell's coolly elegant ladies in dim, luxurious parlors to Frederick Friseke's voluptuous, sun-dappled nudes. This is a beautiful and impressive large library or hardcover coffee table book. The blue cloth bound hardcover is in very nice overall condition with gilt lettering on the spine, stamped front cover. No marring observed with intact pages. Measures 11.25"W x 13.25"L x 1.5"D
