image description100 Artists of the Brandywine Valley by Catherine Quillman

About The Book:

This hardback book focuses on 100 contemporary painters, photographers, and  sculptors who live and work in an area outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  However, the book also includes illustrated sections describing the 19th-century painters (many part of the Hudson River school) who had a similar aesthetic vision of the Brandywine Valley.  Rare early photographs of the same locations that drew the artists are included.

The contemporary photographers selected for the book were chosen for their work in continuing the Brandywine Art Tradition by using  either experimental forms such as pigmented inkjet images or traditional  processes including daguerreotype and wet plate techniques.
