America's Old Masters: Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, Charles Wilson Peale and Gilbert Stuart
(James Thomas Flexner
Though Flexner is now recognized as a master, this 1939 title was his first volume on American art. In it he profiles Benjamin West (1738-1820), John Singleton Copely (1738-1815), Charles Wilson Peale (1741-1827), and Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828). For this edition, 31 of the original illustrations have been rephotographed from new prints, and 38 additional illustrations have been included. A benchmark title for art history collections.
