American Paintings of the Eighteenth Century
Ellen G. Miles
With contributions by Patricia Burda, Cynthia J. Mills & Leslie Kaye Reinhard

Hardcover | 1995 | This edition is out of print | ISBN: 9780894682100

The energy and optimism of the new nation are apparent in this catalogue, which features John Singleton Copley's The Copley Family and Gilbert Stuart's portraits of the first five presidents. Previously unpublished documents and infrared reflectograms shed new light on Benjamin West's Colonel Guy Johnson and Karonghyontye (Captain David Hill), Copley's Watson and the Shark, and Edward Savage's Washington Family.

Distributed for the National Gallery of Art, Washington
