Prendergast in Italy by Nancy Mowell Matthews and Elizabeth Kennedy. Illustrated, 192 pages, hardcover. Merrell Holberton, 2009.
Prendergast in Italy is a rich and detailed study of Prendergast's travels through the land of the Renaissance and of the dramatic impact they had on his œuvre. In addition to in-depth accounts of his visits to Italy - especially Venice - and the work he produced there, the book features contributions from a selection of international scholars that place the artist's Italian experiences in a wider historical and artistic context. Beautifully illustrated throughout, and with a checklist of the complete Italian works, Prendergast in Italy will appeal to anyone interested in the history of American Modernism and the life and legacy of this distinctive artist.
