An in-depth look at one of the richest collections of American art, assembled by Electra Havemeyer Webb, renowned collector and founder of Shelburne Museum.
 
Electra Havemeyer Webb assembled Shelburne Museum’s trove of American paintings in the late 1950s, creating a renowned and rich survey of American portraits, landscapes, marine paintings, sporting art, still lifes, and genre scenes from the eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. During an era that preferred European modernism and abstraction, Webb’s visionary endeavor presented a new story of the United States: an attractive and industrious nation with its own valuable artistic traditions. This handsome book features the best of Shelburne’s American paintings, including works by colonial painters John Wollaston and John Singleton Copley, portraits by William Matthew Prior and Ammi Phillips, Hudson River School landcapes by Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, and John Frederick Kensett, and scenes of American life by Eastman Johnson, Winslow Homer, Andrew Wyeth, and many more. The collection is also notable for its great depth in the works by Fitz Henry Lane, Martin Johnson Heade, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, Carl Rungius, Grandma Moses, and Ogden Pleissner.

Thomas Denenberg is director and Katie Wood Kirchhoff is associate curator at Shelburne Museum, Vermont. John Wilmerding is Sarofim Professor of American Art, emeritus, at Princeton University.
