ART IN NEW YORK STATE 1964 New York World's Fair THE RIVER: PLACES AND PEOPLE 1964 FIRST EDITION The Buffalo Fine Arts Council Hardcover, unpaginated (Approximately 128 pp) This book may be the sole published documentation of an exhibition organized by the New York State Council on the Arts for the New York State Pavilion at the 1964 New York World's Fair. It is a Catalogue of 50 paintings by eighteenth and nineteenth century artists associated with the Hudson River area, with artists' biographies and notes on selected paintings with a Foreword by Seymour H. Knox and title essay by Katharine Kuh. Although most of the reproductions in this book are in b w, 8 of them are in colour. Artists whose work is represented in this collection are: John Watson, John Wesley Jarvis, John Durand, Pieter Vanderlyn, Joseph B. Smith, M.M. Manchester, Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Henry Inman, E.C. Coates, John Kensett, Frederick Church, Samuel F.B. Morse, Francis Guy, John James Audubon, James Bard, John Quidor, Charles Loring Elliot, William Sidney Mount, Eastman Johnson, Alexander Wyant, Homer Martin, George Inness and a number of Anonymous artists. This is a scintillating and scare collection. The Hudson River nourished the art of New York State for two centuries doubling as a life line for commerce and as an inexhaustible stimulus to painters.
