Excerpt from The Story of American Painting: The Evolution of Painting in America From Colonial Times to the Present
My aim has been to trace the growth of Meri can Painting from its scanty beginnings in Colo nial times up to its abundant harvest in the Present. At first the story is necessarily associated with the efforts of a few individuals. Later, however, as students in increasing numbers seek instruction abroad, it becomes concerned less with individuals than with principles of motives and method. The inﬂuence, in turn, of England, Dusseldorf, Munich, and Paris, is discussed, and allusion to individuals is introduced mainly in illustration of the general theme. I have tried, in fact, not only to help the reader to a knowledge of some few painters; but, much more, to put him in possession of a basis of appreciation, on which he may form judgments for himself of the work that is being done to-day by American artists.
