The Sketchbooks of John Samuel Blunt [Color]

Product Description
John Samuel Blunt was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. During his brief career he is known to have executed miniatures, ship ornaments and signage, as well as portraits, landscapes, and marine art. Works by Blunt can be seen in many collections accessible to the public including the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Collection, Williamsburg, Virginia; the American Folk Art Museum, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; New Bedford Whaling Museum, New Bedford, MA; Portsmouth Athenaeum, Portsmouth Historical Society and Strawbery Banke Museum, all of Portsmouth, NH. Deborah Child has followed the meager and elusive documentary and visual trail left by Blunt through the centuries and generations to uncover an astounding body of rarely seen sketches and images that vividly reflect the picturesque landscape of the Seacoast Region. Ms. Child shows that Blunt was on the leading edge of the development of the Romantic Movement in American art. About the Author: Deborah M. Child is an independent art historian and museum consultant based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. She is a graduate of the Master of Arts program at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. For the last five years she has been researching Piscataqua painting of the Federal period, with a special interest in genealogy and provenance searches.

George Caleb Bingham: Missouri's Famed Painter and Forgotten Poilitician (MISSOURI HERITAGE READERS) [Paperback]

Product Description


In this fascinating work, Paul Nagel tells the full story of George Caleb Bingham (1811–1879), one of America’s greatest nineteenth-century painters. While Nagel assesses Bingham’s artistic achievements, he also portrays another very important part of the artist’s career—his service as a statesman and political leader in Missouri. Until now, Bingham’s public service has been largely forgotten, overshadowed by his triumph as a great artist. Yet Nagel finds there were times when Bingham yearned more to be a successful politician than to be a distinguished painter.
Born in Virginia, Bingham moved with his family to Missouri when he was eight years old. He spent his youth in Arrow Rock, Missouri, and returned there as an adult. He also kept art studios in Columbia and St. Louis. In his last years, he served as the first professor of art at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Because of his ties to the state, he was known nationally as “the Missouri artist.” Bingham began his distinguished public service to Missouri as a member of the legislature. During the Civil War, he grew even more politically involved, holding the office of state treasurer, and he remained active throughout the period of Reconstruction. From 1875 to 1877, Bingham served as Missouri’s adjutant general, with most of that time spent in Washington, D. C., where he attempted to settle Missourians’ war claims against the federal government.
Contrary to the idyllic scenes portrayed in most of his paintings, Bingham’s life ranged from moments of high achievement to times of intense distress and humiliation. His career was often touched by controversy, sorrow, and frustration. Personal letters and other manuscripts reveal Bingham’s life to be quite complicated, and Paul Nagel attempts to uncover the truth in this biography.
Beautifully illustrated, this book includes a magnificent landscape entitled Horse Thief, which had been missing since Bingham painted it sometime around 1852. Recently discovered by art historian Fred R. Kline, this splendid work will appear in print for the first time. Anyone who has an interest in art, Missouri history, or politics will find this new book extremely valuable.
