Prendergast in Italy

Nancy Mowll Mathews with Elizabeth Kennedy

At the time of his first visit to Italy in 1898, the American artist Maurice Prendergast (1858–1924) was regarded by many as an up-and-coming talent, renowned for his cutting-edge Impressionist watercolours and experimental monotypes. The remarkable body of work he produced during this trip, and during a second in 1911, would earn him great acclaim and secure his position within the vanguard of American Modernism. Beautifully illustrated throughout, and with contributions from a selection of international scholars, Prendergast in Italy is the story not only of this much-loved painter’s travels through the land of the Renaissance, but also of the dramatic impact they had on his œuvre.

 

A rich and detailed study of Prendergast’s Italy, featuring the complete Italian works 
Will appeal to anyone interested in the history of American Modernism and the life and legacy of this distinctive artist

Published in association with the Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, Massachusetts
