This beautiful exhibition catalog will be an excellent addition to any folk art lover's library, as the book is filled with hundreds of pages with high-quality images of artworks. A Shared Legacy: Folk Art In America tells the story of the extraordinary American folk art—created by self-taught or minimally trained artists—in New England, the Midwest, the Mid-Atlantic, and the South between 1800 and 1925. These unique works are drawn from the collection of Barbara L. Gordon, a trustee at the American Folk Art Museum, who, over two decades, assembled a broad-reaching collection of American paintings, sculpture, furniture and decorative arts of the highest quality. These artworks were exhibited at the American Folk Art Museum from December 2014 to March 2015. Introduction by Richard Miller; essays by Avis Berman, Cynthia G. Falk, Lisa Minardi, and Ralph Sessions; catalog entries by Richard Miller. Paperback; 256 pages. Measures: 11 x 8 9/16 x 13/16 inches.
