The 117 essays in this book discuss a selection of paintings from the colonial period to the present that represent a collection unrivaled in the western United States as a survey of art in America. In addition to masterworks from the Rockefeller Collection, paintings by notable modern and contemporary artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Charles Demuth, Chiura Obata, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud, and Ed Ruscha are depicted in lavish full-color plates. The accompanying essays offer fresh analysis and interpretation of their subjects and provide an introduction to the collection as it is now displayed in the new de Young in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.
