"This welcome anthology, edited by Siegel, has prominent contributors such as Alan Wallach, Kenneth Meyers, and David Schuyler. . . . All the essays provide well-considered insights into American landscape painting. . . . Highly recommended."—CHOICE
"The Cultured Canvas is a provocative collection of essays, with many of them questioning conventionally held concepts in nineteenth-century American art. They, in turn, will undoubtedly be challenged by future scholarship forcing a further rethinking of the ideas regarding the art of this country. The other essays in this volume expand our knowledge by exploring ideas or concepts not previously investigated. In all, it is a thought-provoking book."—Kenneth W.
