...<b>The Artist's Mount Desert: American Painters on the Maine Coast</b>, Wilmerding, John
11 Wilmerding, John ...The Artist's Mount Desert: American Painters on the Maine Coast
New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1995. 0691037507 / 9780691037509 Soft cover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality. ____176 color and b/w plates. Lists 176 works which are all in some way connected with Mt. Desert Island.
In a panoramic narrative John Wilmerding has brought together individual studies of the artists who painted Mount Desert Island off the Maine coast in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
The figures most central to this chronology are the pioneers, Thomas Doughty, Alvan Fisher, and Thomas Cole, who generalized and romanticized nature in their visits of the 1830s and 1840s, Fitz Hugh Lane in the 1850s, and Frederic Edwin Church in the 1850s and 1860s.
Other artists, among them William Stanley Haseltine, Sanford Gifford, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and, more recently, Richard Estes, continued to come to Mount Desert and to find in its light, air, and rock formations the kind of scenery that inspired a rich diversity of visual expressions.
