John Haberle American Master of Illusion by Gertrude Sill, 1st Ed



John Haberle: American Master of Illusion by Gertrude Grace Sill, Pamela Barr Editor, Douglas K. S. Hyland Contributor. New Britain Museum, Connecticut, 2010. 1st Ed softcover catalog for an exhibition at The New Britain Museum (CT), 12/11/2009 to 3/11/2010; Brandywine River Museum, (Chadds Ford, PA) 4/17/2010 to 7/11/2010; and, Portland Museum of Art (ME),9/18/2010 to 12/12/2010. Of the three great 19th c American trompe l’oeil artists—William Michael Harnett (1848–1892), John Frederick Peto (1854–1907), and John Haberle (1856–1933)—the least well known is Haberle. Haberle approached painting with an informed and sophisticated connoisseurship. A highly original artist, he often alluded to complicated, ingenious, and entertaining aspects of contemporary society. The rarity of his work only adds to its allure. This catalogue, the seminal study of Haberle’s life and work, illuminates the artist and his witty works of art that continue to have interested viewers today. NPT Books, a division of Trent Antiques, has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.
