Metropolitan Lives: The Ashcan Artists and Their New York
Rebecca Zurier, Robert W. Snyder, and Virginia M. Mecklenburg
The six artists whose earthy, urban subjects led critics to call them the “Ashcan School” are featured in this book. The authors document how closely the work of these artists reflected current events and social concerns at the turn of the century. Newspaper clippings, postcards, and other ephemera of the period are reproduced.
