This major reappraisal contributes a wealth of new scholarship. Based on letters, sketchbooks, contemporary articles and reviews, it also brings to life an exciting and pivotal era, for Prendergast was in the forefront of modern painting in America. He exhibited as one of The Eight, becoming known as one of the "Red Hots," and participated in the Armory Show.
His experiences, including living and working in Europe, allowed him to draw on a wide variety of sources - including Cezanne, Signac, the Renaissance Italian painter, and Watteau. Out of these he created his own truly unique idiom.
