A handsome book with highlights from the Philadelphia Art Museum's collection of American Modernist paintings.

With an emphasis on painting and sculpture made in the United States between 1910 and 1950, this gorgeously illustrated volume offers a rich introduction to American modernism through the world-class collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The lively and punchy introduction examines the roles that the museum and the city of Philadelphia played in promoting modernism from its inception.

Works by internationally acclaimed artists from the circle of photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz, including Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Charles Sheeler, and less well known artists are excellently reproduced here.
