Robert L. McGrath surveys -- often at an exhilarating pace -- the
topographic and metaphoric landscape of New Hampshire's White
Mountains through the artistic and tourist life of the region as it
appears in paintings and illustrations. Extending from the late
eighteenth to the late twentieth century, he includes by far the
most extensive collection of pictorial works relating to the White
Mountains to date.
Although the scenic beauty of the White Mountains attracted many
of America's most significant artists during the nineteenth and
twentieth centuries, such as Thomas Cole, Frank Stella, Winslow
Homer, Fernand Leger, John Marin, and Marsden Hartley, no
comprehensive account of this region's rich contribution to the
history of American art has ever been published.
Written in a vital, concise prose style, full of fresh insights,
comparisons and juxtapositions, this study promises to command and
hold the attention of anyone with an interest in the interplay of
art, nature, and American culture.
