nineteenth centuries were awed not only by the continent’s varying landorms butalso by the animals they encountered: vast herds o bualo, majestic horned stags,a bewildering variety o birds. The earliest sketches depicting these auna began theremarkable tradition o wildlie in American art, a tradition that evolved along withthe United States as a nation and still thrives today.For more than two decades, the National Museum o Wildlie Art in Jackson, Wyoming,has honored and sustained this tradition by assembling the most comprehensivecollection o paintings and sculptures portraying North American wildlie in theworld.
Wildlie in American Art 
presents or the rst time a generous sampling o themuseum’s holdings, charts the history o this enduring theme in American art, andexplores the evolving relationship between Americans and the natural resources o this continent.More than a museum catalogue, this volume oers descriptions o individual artistsin the collection as well as in-depth, inormative essays about what the naturalenvironment has meant to Americans over time—untamed wilderness, sublimecreation, endless resource, threatened habitat. Author and art historian Adam DuncanHarris also describes how these meanings have played out in painting and sculptureover the past two centuries. More than 125 ull-color illustrations highlight the entirerange o the museum’s collection, rom the western wilds o George Catlin to the desertdrama o Georgia O’Keee. Also included are elegant birdstones carved by ancientAmericans, exquisite avian artwork by John James Audubon, epic western scenes byAlbert Bierstadt, idealistic depictions o unspoiled wilderness by Carl Rungius, andmodern takes on the subject by Andy Warhol, Paul Manship, and Robert Kuhn.By bringing together and comparing works o unmatched beauty and majesty, thisvolume gives to a salient theme in American art the attention it has long deserved.
