The Photography of Charles Sheeler : American Modernist
Gilles Mora, Theodore E. Stebbins Jr. , Karen E. Haas
A superb monograph dedicated to Charles Sheeler, photographer and painter, really famous for his photographs of the Ford plant in River Rouge (1927).
The quality of the texts and print is undeniable but, one can only regret the lack of colour for the paintings.
This book comes with the exhibition "The photography of Charles Sheeler
