Katahdin has been called Maine’s greatest treasure. In addition to the outdoor and sporting tradition that surrounds it, there is a distinct tradition of art. For more than a hundred years, some of the most prominent landscape painters—Marsden Hartley, Frederic Church, John Marin, and many others—have portrayed Katahdin. Art of Katahdin is the first book to catalog this tradition. Filled with hundreds of color artworks this books traces the artists who have worked at Katahdin, from the earliest renderings and maps of the area to contemporary views. The text follows some of the history of the region, as well as the artists’ ties to the mountain.

Beautiful book2013年7月15日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
For anyone who knows this marvelous mountain in Maine, this is a wonderful exposition. The artwork ranges from the sketch to the brave painting, and the text is informative and sublime. If my name is shown in this review, be it know that to the best of my knowledge I am no relation to the author. He's just made a gorgeous book about a gorgeous mountain that I know well and love much. Very worth a look.
If you love mountains...2013年7月11日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I love mountains, stories about Native Americans, early settlers, and art. This mystical mountain in Maine has attracted more than its fair share of myths, legends, and artists. I too have a painting of it, and so this book was especially special for me. It's on my coffee table, and I love dipping into it.
Excellent reproductions, informative and thorough.2013年8月20日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Art of Katahdin by David Little is a thorough, enticing, informative look at Maine's most famous mountain and how it has inspired artists for centuries. With quite a bit of background on general history of the mountain and visitors (aside from artists) to it, the reader gets a good sense of the general appeal of the peak and the areas surrounding it. Make no mistake though, this is a book about the art inspired by it and it is full of wonderful reproductions of paintings from famous artists like Fitz Henry Lane up to living artists painting the mountain today. All in all an important, beautifully designed and printed book for anyone interested in Maine art and artists.

I love this book because my Dad's (Waldo Preble) Art is in it. I grew up in the state of Maine and my family owns a camp on an island on Ambejejus Lake that faces that very view on the cover. My Dad's painting of "The Boom House" is on page 136. We grew up watching the boom boat haul the logs down the lake.
