Book signed by J. Warner. An American Odyssey is the story of Jonathan Westervelt Warner, an entrepreneur, art collector, and philanthropist. The volume is both a record of the collection -- important American fine and decorative arts -- and a personality study of a warm-spirited and generous man. Jack Warner started to collect art to complement his family’s Gulf States Paper Corporation headquarters in Alabama. Since 1970, the collection has become an unparalleled assembly of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century American art; it also reflects Warner’s strong interest in American history and his sense of patriotism and heritage.
Among the portrait, landscape, and history paintings in the collection are seminal works such as Progress by Asher B. Durand, The Falls of Kaaterskill by Thomas Cole, Above the Clouds at Sunrise by Frederic E. Church, and Niagara Falls by Albert Bierstadt. Also included are works by John James Audubon, James Peale, Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, and Andrew Wyeth, as well as masterworks by America’s most famous craftspeople, such as Paul Revere and Duncan Phyfe. Engaging essays explore various facets of Warner and his collection: a fascination with George Washington and other patriotic symbols; a life-long interest in architecture; and the history of the nation as portrayed by its most important artists.

About the Author
Tom Armstrong has been the director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Andy Warhol Museum.


The book is brand new and authographed by Jack Warner
