This is an auction for AMERICAN VISIONS: THE EPIC HISTORY OF ART IN AMERICA, by Robert Hughes.

"This is an exploration of America through the history of its art. It is a companion volume to the eight-part BBC-Television series. The book begins where American art itself began: five centuries ago, wth the Native Americans and the first Spanish invaders in the Southwest through to the present. In between, it tells the story of how America's artistic tradition was created: by public taste, by a landscape of great variety; by a culture that stretched into dozens of foreign lands; and by numerous painters, sculptors and architects. Biographies, critical commentaries and anecdotes all make up this volume."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Robert Hughes is the author of "Heaven and Hell in Western Art", The Shock of the New", "The Fatal Shore", "Nothing If Not Critical", "Barcelona", and "The Culture of Complaint"." He was born in Australia in 1938 and lived and worked in the United States, where he was been Time magazine's art critic for more than twenty-five years, until his death in 2012. He was the recipient of a number of awards and prizes for his work, including one from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Age Book of the Year Award for The Fatal Shore.
