In her “Graphic Newport, 1830-1930,” Nancy Whipple Grinnell documents the prolific accomplishments of many artists who rendered scenes of Newport and Newport life via graphic media—engravings, lithographs and new forms of printmaking. Covering a century of work, Grinnell carefully records different graphic techniques and the artists who used them in depicting life and landscapes in and around the city of Newport. This comprehensive and richly illustrated study will provide a substantial foundation for future work on the subject. Nancy Whipple Grinnell is Curator Emerita of the Newport Art Museum, where she served from 1998 through 2016. She is the author of a biography of the museum’s founder, Carrying the Torch: Maud Howe Elliott and the American Renaissance, and numerous museum catalogues and brochures. Grinnell’s recent projects have included organizing historical exhibitions for the Gilbert Stuart Museum with accompanying articles in American Art Review and producing the catalogue Rediscovering Matunuck: the Woodcock Collection of Hale Family Art. She chairs the Collections Committee at the Providence Art Club and is working on a book about Newport artists, 1850-1950.
