Few regular venues for the display of contemporary American art existed before 1826. In that year, the National Academy of Design in New York began a series of annual exhibitions featuring works by 200 to 300 artists, and for decades afterward this venerable institution led the way in introducing important new talent to the art world. Until the advent of Modernism in the early 20th century, the Academy remained one of only a few venues to regularly exhibit contemporary art. Rave Reviews explores the role that these exhibitions played in the development of American art criticism and the dissemination and marketing of American art.This is the first book to combine essays on contemporary art criticism written by experts for a general audience with illustrations of many of America's best loved masterpieces. It includes artists such as Thomas Cole, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins, and John Sloan. Eight essays outline the development of criticism and place it in the larger context of the history of American art. Primarily a richly illustrated history of 19th- and early 20th-century American art criticism, with an emphasis on taste and patronage, Rave Reviews gives readers a fresh look at the art world between 1876 and 1925.

I bought this book specifically for the information on the Robert Walter Weir painting (approximately one page).

The information was extremely thorough; it is clear the author really did his research. There is information in there that must have taken some hard work to find. The ~1 page of information in Weir's painting was enough to easily justify buying the book.

A very interesting book about the development of art criticism from the early 18 hundreds. Worth reading for anyone interested is learning the evolution of American Art criticism. It strong recommend it.

This is an extremely important book, especially regarding the Armory show's effect on our acceptance of modern art. The Armory show could easily have been just a footnote in American art. But due to three activist critics, Mary Fanton Roberts, Henry McBride, and Forbes Watson, working to undermine the somewhat insular old guard of The National Academy of Design while promoting works of "masculine vigor" (Roberts and The Eight) and other works, those of a more unconventional experimental nature, the Armory show today is generally held to be something of a holy cow. (Pages 131-138) There are flaws all over the art world, but the NAD served a useful purpose. Run by individuals it was not perfect, but it could not have been as imperfect as the situation is today. Go see the Met's "Reimagining Modernism". That exhibition of tired old fashioned modernism, ungainly amateurism, and pittiful realism (with the exception of Lucioni's portrait of Jared French) illustrates the disastrous effect of the activist critics' work with which we live today.
