Summary:
"Best known for his interiors and landscapes featuring beautiful women in artful poses and subtly related color harmonies, Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938) lived and worked at the forefront of developments in modern American art. His paintings, which navigate a course between the bravura of John Singer Sargent and the attenuated aestheticism of James McNeill Whistler, convey a sensuous beauty that remains uniquely his and that represents an exceptional phase in American painting. Featuring a comprehensive biography and engaging, narrative commentaries, this elegant, 2-volume catalogue raisonné is an essential and much-needed reference. Included here are more than 550 works of art as well as previously unpublished photographs from the artist's own albums; each work is accompanied by a full provenance, exhibition histories, and literature--both published and archival." -- Publisher's description.
