It's finally here!

Exciting news for fans of Tonalism! The long awaited History of American Tonalism finally became available this week. This 500+ page tome has been in the works for years (I preordered it from Amazon in April 2009!) and the publication date has been pushed back numerous times. So when it arrived yesterday I was thrilled. Christmas comes early!

Glad to hear you received it, Deborah - mine should be coming soon, then!

Hi Deborah,
I ordered this book and was amazed when it came - it's huge. It looks like it fills in some gaps in art history. For one thing, I've always been a fan of Albert Pinkham Ryder and now I'm learning more about how his work ties in.
Thanks for mentioning the book!

It is huge isn't it! I am enjoying it immensely and very interested in the connections he makes as well as his take on how Tonalism was actually the prevailing style and influenced the modernists.
