EDMUND C. TARBELL AND THE BOSTON SCHOOL OF PAINTING (1889-1980) by Patricia Jobe Pierce edited by John Douglas Ingraham

Edmund C. Tarbell, a dedicated American painter, was concerned that the American art student obtain a sound and inspiring education in drawing and painting. Although Tarbell had the unfortunate stigma of being derogatorily labeled "just a Boston painter" at the beginning of his career, he overcame this burden by becoming one of the most sought-after, outspoken, well-known teachers in the United States, who was also applauded as an innovative impressionist painter. This book tells the intriguing story of this creative man's lifelong struggle to obtain recognition and financial reward for himself and for fine American artists in general, during periods of public abuse and neglect. It was no accident that Tarbell and the unique school of painting which he developed became internationally acclaimed. Tarbell carefully calculated every step of the way. By doing so, he developed an important tradition of American painting techniques, and the artists who learned how to paint in the Tarbellesque manner became known as the Boston school. This school, still being developed and improved upon today, has survived criticism, Modernism and public unawareness for many reasons. These reasons and that plight are unveiled in this book.
