Richard Caton Woodville, who died tragically in 1855 at the age of thirty, left behind a small body of work, of which the largest holding is in the American collection of the Walters Art Museum. Hailed in his own time, Woodville has retained a privileged place in the American canon for his insightful, exquisitely composed and often humorous works, illustrative of the political, social and cultural concerns of the period immediately preceding the American Civil War. Accompanying the first monographic exhibition of Woodville’s paintings since 1967, this book brings together the artist’s known paintings and many works on paper, including several recently discovered works.
This publication accompanied an exhibition at the Walters Art Museum from March 10, 2013- June 2, 2013.
