    Flipping through this book, you feel like you're enjoying a summer afternoon in New England --whether it's a painting of a beach scene in Ogunquit, Maine or a man walking down Boston's Botolph Street during a hot, languid noontime or imagining the fragrance of a bouquet of fresh wildflowers in a glass, "Painting Summer in New England" evokes the character of the fleeting summers of New England. Its many different treatments of a variety of subject matters are organized in chapters such as Quiet Retreats, Sea and Shore, The Farm, Plant Life, Architecture, Streets and Gathering Places, as well as Coastal Light and New England Nudes. And the works of well-known artists such as Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Fitz Henry Lane, Andrew and N.C. Wyeth, and Maurice Prendergast share the spotlight with more modern (and some lesser known) artists including Fairfield Porter, Scott Prior, Marguerite Zorach, Stuart Davis and Alex Katz. All in all, the book is a delightful sampling of traditional and modern paintings that explore the distinctive character that is Summer in New England from several fresh, appealing, and unique points of view.My husband and I had the privilege of viewing the actual paintings when they were on display at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts several summers ago. I couldn't leave the museum without taking a piece of summer in New England with me, so I purchased the book on the spot. Now when it starts to get cold here in New England, I will warm my soul by flipping through the book yet again. Whether you live in New England or elsewhere, I invite you to experience a bit of New England, too.

    I second the opinion given above. This show at the Peabody-Essex museum in Salem, Massachusetts, was the most breath-taking exhibit I've seen in my entire life. If only there could be an encore, I'd pay to see it again. And probably again. I'm so glad I got there when I did, the day before it closed.I wanted to buy the catalog as I left the exhibit halls, but it was sold out. I'm so pleased that it's being offered here. The sample catalog they had in the exhibit halls had the finest reproductions I've seen anywhere. As accurately rendered as the best ones that come out of Britain. I've wished many times since, that I'd thought to ask the staff if I might buy the sample copy, battered as it was by then, when the exhibit closed the next day.I'm so happy to have stumbled across the catalogue here on Amazon and I can't wait for the copy I've just purchased to arrive, so I can revisit these magnificent paintings.Highly reccomended to anyone who loves fine representational art.

    Beautiful book!! I've had it for years and just purchased it for my very dear friend from New England. The paintings are so pretty. It's a lovely coffee table book!

    I was very disapointed in this book. It is my fault. I was familiar with some of the artists, but not all. I should have done my research before purchasing it. I assumed from the cover that there would be more American Impressionists and fewer modern art. While there are some that I would call impressionist style painters, most were not. The cover was definately not indicative of what you would find inside. So, if you are attracted to this book by the cover, don't buy it. My apologies to those who loved this book, all of you who previously reviewed this book seem to have seen the show and knew what you were getting. Again - my own fault.

    This was the best art show that I have ever attended. This catalogue beautifully captures the spirit of being their in person with additional insight into the pieces and exhibition.

    This book is absolutely beautiful. I originally found it in my college library, and soon after bought a copy as a present for my dad. There are a variety of types of paintings included, although most are impressionistic. As someone who's spent most of his life in New England and has explored much of it, I found the collection to be an excellent representation of the area, albeit a little focused on the coast and Cape Cod in particular. It's also impressive how cheaply I was able to buy a new copy. The binding and cover are very sturdy.

    My friends took me to see this ehibit and it was great! I walked the gallery rooms until i was exhausted! While some of the paintings aren't as beautiful in print as they are in "person" it was still worth while! it is like atending the show once again, each time I open it!

    Just saw this exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. Just breath-taking. The book is a treasure.
