Rural modern : American art beyond the city by Amanda C Burdan( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paintings of New England coastlines, small-town Pennsylvania, Southwestern canyons, Midwestern farms, and other evocative landscapes fill the pages of this book. More than sixty modernist works, created between the wars, present an important and often overlooked history: how American painters adapted avant-garde styles like Cubism and Fauvism to reimagine familiar landscapes and develop a distinctively American modernist vernacular. Richly illustrated and with insightful essays by noted scholars, the book traces this development through a broad range of works by both lesser-known and widely celebrated artists. As important as the marvel of the twentieth-century city was to modernist artists such as these, many sought respite and even refuge in quieter, rural areas of the country, and soon helped to confirm modernism's enduring nature.00Exhibition: Brandywine River Museum of Art, Chadds Ford, USA (29.10.16 - 22.01.2017) / High Museum of Art, Atlanta, USA (12.02. - 07.05.2017)
