Albert Pinkham Ryder, along with Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins, is recognized as one of the great "ancestors" of American painting, although he was largely unknown in his own time. Twentieth-century taste discovered him and his mystical pictures have had a profound effect on modern abstract art.Lloyd Goodrich is Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art under whose auspices his definitive biography of Thomas Eakins was published in 1933. For many years Mr. Goodrich has been carrying on research in the life and work of Albert P. Ryder, in preparation for a definitive biography. Since Ryder's work has been widely forged, with the forgeries outnumbering the genuine pictures about eight to one, this study has involved examination of hundreds of paintings, using x-rays and other scientific methods. The present volume, originally published in 1959, has the advantage of these years of thorough study.
