From the dust jacket- "This beautifully illustrated catalogue, created to accompany a traveling exhibition of Sheeler's works, features detailed analyses of his various media and methods. Focusing on the complex, often paradoxical relationships among photography, film, drawing, printmaking, and painting that were central to Sheeler's art, it offers new interpretations of critical periods in the artists career, beginning with a discussion of his seminal photographs, circa 1917, of the interior of an eighteenth-century Quaker fieldstone house in Doylestown, Pennsylvania."
