About the Book
The first comprehensive book about the Washington, D.C. region’s art world, this study features humorous and unique stories about the artists and art districts of one of the U.S.’s most visited cities. Among the city’s many firsts are the first modern art museum, the first African-American gallery, and the first art fair. It was also witness to the feminist art movement’s beginnings, culminating in the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ opening. Chapters are arranged by decade beginning with 1900, and highlight trends in portraits and landscapes, galleries and museums, non-profits, cooperatives, art fairs, family stories and the Artomatic experience.
