"Find the best antique and vintage collector books and price guides on antiques and collectibles that appraisers and dealers use plus expert collecting book reviews at Collectics Antique Collector Bookstore." World Antiques Weekly

Featuring art from the Colonial period to the present, this book represents the second major exhibition at the new building of the American Folk Art Museum in New York. Cocurators Hollander and Brooke Davis Anderson have assembled an impressive compilation of material from the permanent collection that is extensively covered in this fine companion book American Anthem: Masterworks from the American Folk Art Museum. Spectacular illustrations are sandwiched between erudite essays that define this very inclusive collection, which offers everything from paintings, quilts, and weather vanes to furniture and contemporary works by self-taught artists. Also included are extensive notes on each piece that are both interesting and informative. However, what makes this an excellent choice for collectors is its inclusion of art forms that have often been separated in the past. The work of Horace Pippin, Grandma Moses, and Ammi Phillips is right alongside that of Henry Darger and Bill Traylor, bringing together in one source the genuine "big picture" of self-taught art in America over time. From Log Cabin quilts and painted wood furniture to watercolors and oil paintings; from Hosea Hayden's idiosyncratic folding chairs to the drawings of the octogenarian street artist and former slave Bill Traylor; from Girl in Red Dress with Cat and Dog, the masterpiece of 19th-century ancestral portrait artist Ammi Phillips, to works by the noted contemporary self-taught artist Thornton Dial Sr., here are 293 remarkable examples of this vital yet still underexamined touchstone to American culture.
