"The straightforward title might suggest a straightforward survey of the Farnsworth's collection, but not so...Collectively, [the books] tell[s] the story of two centuries of Maine art from a variety of angles. The fascinating first chapter isn't much about artwork at all: it's a fresh evaluation - supported by recently discovered correspondence - of Lucy Copeland Farnsworth's effort at willing an ambitious art museum into existence in Rockland." -DownEast.com

"Guided by the museum's mission to celebrate Maine's role in American art, the book features a diverse range of American artists from Marsden Hartley, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O'Keeffe to Francesco Clemente, Robert Rauschenberg, and Alex Katz. Through more than 200 images, the story of the Farnsworth Art Museum is told variously through monographic chapters devoted to Jonathan Fisher, the Wyeth family, Louise Nevelson, and Robert Indiana, among others; thematic chapters, including Maine's landscape, its many industries, and important inhabitants; and includes important areas of concentration in the Farnsworth collection, such as watercolors and photography." -ARTFIXDAILY.COM

"...an expansive 384-page volume devoted to the Farnsworth collection...In it, the rich and full picture of Maine's central role in American art from the early 19th century to the present is chronicled." -CAMDEN HERALD
