America's history is told in many ways, not least in the art that reveals the country's soul. This impressive volume is a unique retelling of that story, with a southern perspective as its recurring theme, it celebrates the museum's fiftieth anniversary with a selection of 101 works representing a remarkable collection. Included are paintings, sculptures, ceramics, silver and furniture from the Colonial era to postmodern times. Works by such well-known artists as William Merritt Chase, Eastman Johnson, and John Henry Twachtman make up the collection as well as pieces by artists whose style and aesthetics reflect a modernist search for individual expression, notably William Glackens, Lee Krasner, and Robert Motherwell.
