Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764336827, Hardcover)

The most comprehensive review of the Provincetown Art Colony to date, this two-volume set is complete with conversations with many artists, including Robert Motherwell, Jack Tworkov, Red Grooms, Raphael Soyer, and Chaim Gross, and nearly 300 images of works by those artists, as well as Childe Hassam, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, Adolph Gottlieb, Edward Hopper, and numerous others. Attracted by its sparkling natural light and spirit of freedom, artists have flocked to Provincetown since the late 19th century. Now recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as the "home of the nation's oldest art colony," Provincetown is a microcosm of American art of the last century, as well as a community for artists who played vital roles in American art movements. In volume one, Deborah Forman traces the history of these artists from 1899, when Charles Hawthorne opened his Cape Cod School of Art, through the struggles among traditionalists, impressionists, modernists, and abstract expressionists. Volume two picks up at mid-century and continues to the present day with discussions and art by Paul Resika, Arnold Newman, Joel Meyerowitz, Arthur Cohen, Michael Mazur, Anne Packard, and many others. Throughout this valuable resource, Provincetown's rich art heritage is captured through more than sixty personal accounts from artists, collectors, gallery owners, and writers who shared their stories, views of art, and love of Provincetown with the author.
