This beautifully illustrated book presents a lively chronicle of one of the most important eras in American art: that period beginning in the 1870’s and ending at the dawn of World War I in which a group of artists under the leadership of Robert Henri broke with the provincial and academic formulas of the mid-19th-century art world and set a bold new direction in American art. The book is authored by Bennard Perlman, an important Henri scholar.
