List of Plates

In choosing the illustrations the dual aim has been to emphasize the more important painters and at the same time to achieve a rounded representation of American painting as a whole. Subsidiary to that, preference has been given to pictures in collections generally accessible to the public. All the paintings are in oil on canvas unless otherwise specified. Dimensions are given in inches, with height first and width second.
