A compelling catalogue documenting the work of American illustrators and painters who practiced painting as an art unto itself and as a means to tell a story

The catalogue explores the often uneasy relationship between the art of painting and the art of illustration, featuring American artists who practiced both styles of painting between 1850 and 1950. The catalogue charts the development of both types of art through the eyes of a select group of artists of who engaged in both fine art and illustration.

RICHARD J. BOYLE, former director of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, is an art historian and author of numerous publications on American art.
