Summary
The warm glow of another era illuminates New York City in a nostalgic tour around the turn-of-the-century metropolis during the romantic heyday of Impressionism. Organized geographically, the book chronicles the intersection of the city's history with art history. Illustrations include paintings by popular artists of the time as well as those less-known. Sidebars by writers such as Henry James and Frederick Law Olmsted reveal the pleasures and perils of metropolitan life at the time. 160 illus. 100 in full color. (Previously published at $40.00)
