E. Ambrose Webster: Chasing the Sun
By Gail R. Scott
E. Ambrose Webster (1869-1935) was among the earliest and most accomplished American modernists. His rhapsodic landscapes of blazing sunlight and explosive color are startling even today for their innovation. He was an artist in whom Edward Hopper could find no flaw, while Richard Diebenkorn thought Webster painted some of the most vigorous and notable color essays in the history of American art. E. Ambrose Webster: Chasing the Sun is the first in-depth study of Webster’s career.
