SHAPING AN AMERICAN LANDSCAPE: THE ART AND ARCHITECTURE OF CHARLES A. PLATT. Keith N. Morgan et al. Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, 1995. Published in association with University Press of New England, Hanover. 214 pp. with 139 ills. (26 col.). 29 x 24 cm. LC 94-31831 ISBN 0874517044 In English.
A substantial study of the multifaceted career of American architect, painter and printmaker Platt (1861-1933), this catalogue includes reproductions of atmospheric landscape paintings and etchings of urban and coastal scenes produced by the artist in the 1880s and 90s while documenting with drawings and photographs the apartment and commercial buildings and Italianate country houses and landscape designs that reflect his prominent role in the American Renaissance movement from the turn of the century to the 1930s. Six lengthy essays include a discussion of Platt's successful career as a painter-etcher, a review of the principal architectural commissions of his New York-based firm, an analysis of his influential achievements as a landscape architect, and an examination of an Ohio country estate that exemplifies the main characteristics of his style.
