Many consider that America's most original contribution to art is the medium of watercolor, as no other country can boast of watercolorists of such inventiveness and brilliance as, among others, Sargent, Homer, LaFarge, Prendergast, Demuth, Martin, Burchfield, and Hopper. Awash in Color features the most beautiful watercolors in the impressive collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The authors survey the development of the medium and discuss each painting to provide, in aggregate, a history of American watercolors that has become the standard reference on the subject. Unavailable since 1994, the paperback edition will bring this valuable collection back into print. A beautiful art book, featuring superb color reproductions of 125 paintings, plus details.
