***SPECIAL PRICE down from $79.99 while stocks last*** At the time of his first visit to Italy in 1898, the American artist Maurice Prendergast (1858?1924) was regarded by many as an up-and-coming talent, renowned for his cutting-edge Impressionist watercolours and experimental monotypes. The remarkable body of work he produced during this trip, and during a second in 1911, would earn him great acclaim and secure his position within the vanguard of American Modernism. Beautifully illustrated throughout, and with contributions from a selection of international scholars, 'Prendergast in Italy' is the story not only of this much-loved painter's travels through the land of the Renaissance, but also of the dramatic impact they had on his ?uvre.
