Praise For…

“The intersection of data and design yields rich, consideration-worthy results—not to mention offering provocative fodder for discussion and debate. The graphics are colorful, witty, and enhance the data presented.” - Booklist

“This book is one of those you want to leave in that place where you always seem to have time to spare, because every page is browse-able. Just dip in here, tuck in over there, and read any one of the page-or-two entries … There's learning going on here but for sure, whatever you read in this book is fun stuff to know for anyone ages 10 to adult.” - Terri Schlichemeyer, The Bookworm Sez

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
