It’s depressing art. Depressing art and the depressed and repressed people that created it. Not a great number of illustrations, but more than enough to make the point. Burns is an art professor at the University of Indiana. A rather interesting and entertaining book - even if it does focus on the dark, droopy, cloudy, morbid and horrifying side of American art in the 1800s. #22254
