About this item

The story of Florida through the eyes of artists This stunning anthology presents nearly 200 works of art that illustrate the history and diversity of Florida. Selected from public and private collections across the United States, these paintings, drawings, and photographs—some not widely seen before—display how the Sunshine State has inspired leading figures in American art as well as popular local folk artists. From natural landscapes to frontier outposts to burgeoning towns, the scenes featured in Imagining Florida portray many different aspects of the state—its deep-rooted Seminole and Miccosukee heritage, its historic African American communities, its identity as a tourist destination. Artists include William Bartram, John James Audubon, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Milton Avery, Sally Michel, and Doris Lee. Brought together for the first time in this colorful and surprising book, these visual interpretations of the state are a fascinating exploration of the myths and realities of Florida.
