Pub. Date:
Between 1868 and 1897 Henry James wrote a number of short essays and reviews of artists and art collections; these essays were published in magazines such as "Atlantic Monthly" and "Harper s Weekly" and in newspapers such as the "New York Tribune." They included James s comments on Ruskin, Turner, Whistler, Sargent, and the Impressionists, among many others. Thirty of these essays were collected and first published in a modern edition in 1956, accompanied by John Sweeney s introduction, which sketches James s interest in the visual arts over a period of years, focusing on the ways in which painting and painters entered his work as subjects. Susan Griffin s new forward places James s observations in a contemporary context. Some of the novelist s judgements will seem wrong to today s readers: he was critical of the Impressionists, for example. But all of these essays bear the stamp of James s critical intelligence, and they tell us a great deal about his development as a writer during those years."
