"In Contemporary Rhythm: The Art of Ernest L. Blumenschein" by Peter H. Hassrick
The definitive retrospective on this prominent twentieth-century American artist
One of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists, Ernest L. Blumenschein (1874–1960) was perhaps the most complex and accomplished of all the painters associated with that pioneering organization. His critical acclaim transcended regional confines, and his work continues to be greatly admired.
This volume is the definitive work on Blumenschein’s life and art, reproducing masterworks from a new exhibit along with additional works and historical photographs to form the most comprehensive assemblage of his paintings ever published.
The text by Peter H. Hassrick and Elizabeth J. Cunningham draws on Blumenschein’s papers as well as other archival sources to explore in depth the dimensions of his multifaceted life and his place in American history and culture. As the only book of its kind available on this influential artist, In Contemporary Rhythm is a major contribution to American art history. It is also a visual feast.
