George de Forest Brush : the Indian paintings by Nancy K Anderson( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George de Forest Brush (1854/1855-1941) created an important series of paintings of American Indians that was much celebrated in his time but has been seen rarely since. Brush combined extraordinary technical skills acquired during several years of training in the studio of Jean-Leon Gerome with firsthand experience living among the Arapahoe, Shoshone, and Crow Indians in Wyoming and Montana. This book, the first scholarly study of Brush's Indian paintings, features detailed discussions of individual paintings, interpretative essays exploring the historical and cultural context in which the paintings were produced, a comprehensive chronology, and lavish color reproductions of numerous paintings not shown publicly since the nineteenth century."--Jacket

The records of Milch Gallery document the business transactions of the corporation and the professional and personal relationships of the Milch brothers with the artists they represented, as well as with the larger community of artists and art dealers between 1911 and 1980. Unfortunately, early correspondence is sparse. In a letter responding to a 1951 request for historical information, Milch replied: "Several years ago [1947] we had to give up our gallery at 108 West 57th Street, and move to smaller quarters here. Since we had no room for old records, we had to destroy most of them."
