Description: No other wilderness region in the country has served America's artists for so long or with so many subjects as the Adirondacks. In a volume that covers nearly three hundred years of artistic achievement, Adirondack Museum curator Caroline Mastin Welsh includes essays that were originally presented at the 1995 North American Print Conference. Comprehensive in scope and lavishly illustrated, the book embodies the artistic spectrum, from the documentary to the aesthetic. From Winslow Homer, Dr. Arpad Gerster, and French naturalist Jacques Gerard Milbert to Canadian artist David Milne, Prints and Printmakers of the Adirondacks underscores the importance of the wilderness landscape in American art and culture and the role that prints have played to document, promote, and celebrate the Adirondacks.
