An exhibition catalogue of the artistic contributions of Harold Weston (1894-1972), a significant twentieth-century American painter, etcher, and muralist that breaks new scholarly ground in the field of American art.

"Wild Exuberance: Harold Weston’s Adirondack Art is not just an accompaniment to the exhibition of the painter’s work. Guest curator Rebecca Foster tells an engrossing story of the artist’s life . . . Chief curator Caroline M. Welsh includes an insightful history of art in the Adirondacks during Weston’s lifetime (1894-1972). There are 129 images, mostly color reproductions of Weston’s work, including incandescent Adirondack landscapes that Foster describes as ‘hymns to nature.’ "—Adirondack Life
