An authoritative social history of American art, thoroughly revised to meet classroom needs.

Unique in its inclusive treatment, Framing America embraces the full scope of American art from the sixteenth century to the present. In addition to offering comprehensive coverage of the canon, Frances K.

The fourth edition is presented for the first time in two volumes. It will be sold as individual volumes as well as a packaged set containing both. The book is split in order to offer greater portability to students and to appeal to a greater number of courses. For example, instructors teaching a course on American art since 1900 or American art since 1945 can now assign the single, briefer volume that relates most directly to their course.

Many images have increased in size and color throughout to help students identify small but important details in each work.
