The Princeton University Art  Museum’s collection of American drawings and watercolors is impressive  in both scope and quality, providing a comprehensive overview of the  nation’s artistic traditions. This lavishly illustrated book highlights 77 master drawings and watercolors chosen from the museum’s  extensive collection. The selections, which range from the 18th century to the present, include Benjamin  West, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Andrew Wyeth, Georgia  O’Keeffe, Lee Bontecou, and Tom Wesselmann. 

The book also features an introduction by John Wilmerding  describing Princeton’s history of collecting American art, as well as an  essay by Kathleen A. Foster on the historiography of American drawings  and watercolors. A useful checklist of the Museum’s entire collection of more than 1,300 American drawings and watercolors, selectively illustrated  in color, concludes the book.
