Why We Love This

Painters of the Humble Truth: Masterpieces of American Still Life 1801-1939 by William H. Gerdts. Columbia, MO: University of Missouri Press, 1981. First Edition. 293 pages. More than 140 high quality black-and-white and color illustrations. Still considered to be the definitive book on the subject. The author explores how some American artists used painting to capture the ethos of a moment or an image in time. Many of the objects shown look like they could be plucked from the canvas.
