TWO CENTURIES OF AMERICAN STILL-LIFE PAINTING: THE FRANK AND MICHELLE HEVRDEJS COLLECTION. William H. Gerdts. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 2017. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 288 pp. with 92 col. ills. ISBN 9780300225914 In English.
Due date: February 2017. Publisher's description: Showcasing a treasured private collection amassed over several decades, this publication represents the beauty and complexity of still-life painting in the United States. More than 65 works from the Hevrdejs collection, many of which have never been on public view, are accompanied by comprehensive and accessible explanations that contextualize their role in the ongoing development of the genre. Featuring works by prominent and diverse artists such as Raphaelle Peale, Thomas Hart Benton, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Andrew Wyeth, this study expands the overall notion of the still life by examining its use in a variety of painting styles from the 19th century to the present day. With color illustrations and an essay and entries by a distinguished scholar, this book demonstrates why the genre has been a compelling preoccupation for American artists over two centuries.
