American Visions: The History of American Art and Architecture
American Visions: The History of American Art and Architecture (1996) Robert Hughes, Australian-born art critic of Time magazine since 1970, sought to create an American version of Kenneth Clark’s Civilisation. Substituting furniture and architecture during the early “dry period” of American painting, Hughes has produced a masterful 8-video portrayal of American epic history through multi-dimensional art. A marvelous supplement both to art history and to American history. A companion book includes all of the text and representative illustrations from the PBS series.
