Description
From the European discovery of the New World through the French and Indian War, and from George Washington's crossing of the Delaware to Francis Scott Key writing the "Star-Spangled Banner," contemporary artist Mort Künstler (b. 1927) has documented American history in bold, accurate, heartfelt paintings. The author of Inventing George Washington uses more than 100 of Künstler's works to illustrate this brisk history, including depictions of the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's ride, and the Lewis and Clark expedition, as well as such triumphs as Betsy Ross sewing the Stars and Stripes, the establishment of the first amendment, and the Louisiana Purchase.

"Through Mort Künstler's brilliant brush, the horror, triumph, expanse and intimacy of the founding of the United States can be experienced first-hand. With this book, Künstler proves yet again that he is a modern-day marvel."—J.J. Abrams
