A perspective to Martin Johnson Heade and his works, presenting him as one of the most original and productive painters of his time. Theodore Stebbins builds on his 1975 study of Heade, drawing on several newly discovered collections of Heade's letters and the painter's Brazilian journal.

Drawing on newly available archival resources and scholarship on this American landscape artist (1819-1904), the author offers a substantial rewriting and massive expansion of his 1975 text (Yale Univ. o.p.). Stebbins (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) brings Heade to life as an individual in a chronologically arranged essay on his life and art. Although the critical estimate of his work is not radically different from Stebbins's earlier assessment, the oeuvre catalogue has been increased dramatically, from under 400 to over 600 paintings. Despite an awkward horizontal size and inadequate binding, this title supplants the earlier one for academic collections; more popular collections may be served by the catalog of the current traveling exhibition, also by Stebbins (Martin Johnson Heade, LJ 12/99).
