Description - Art as Evidence by Jules David Prown

The volume begins with theoretical essays that document Prown's thinking as a cultural art historian, followed by the presentation of a number of his finest writings on American art. These pieces focus on the work of key 18th-century American artists - Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, Charles Willson Peale and John Trumbull - who painted in England as well as in America, and on the work of such major 19th-century artists as Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins. The essays reveal Prown's trajectory as an art historian: the earlier ones are examples of more traditional art historical methodology, as Prown investigates formalist and iconographic techniques, and the later ones demonstrate his developing interest in unpacking cultural meaning from objects.
