Butler, Joseph T., et al.
The American Eagle. Spirit and Symbol, 1782-1882.

Katonah Museum of Art: 1988.

"Symbol of the Republic, America's ubiquitous eagle surfaced in many places, enhancing furniture, household items, architecture, military artifacts, coins, broadsides, posters, and more. Its appearance reflected popular culture, and its representation mirrored changing aesthetics. The catalogue includes a sampling of the exhibition with black-and-white illustrations. Curator Joseph T. Butler, Curator and Director of Collections at Historic Hudson Valley, Tarrytown, NY, writes about the eagle in the American decorative arts, while Philip M. Isaacson, author of The American Eagle, offers an anecdotal discussion of the history of the eagle as an American symbol."

Softcover. 8.5"x11", 16 pages, b/w illustrations. New.
