A rudimentary glance at the Gilded Age. i did appreciate the inclusion of many reproductions of paintings done during that period; many are of the characters most remembered (Edith Wharton,Consuelo Vanderbilt aka Duchess of Marlborough, Isabella Stewart Gardner, etc) and many now in private collections.

Eleanor Dwight writes a good interdisciplinary overview of arts and culture in the Gilded Age in just 75 pages. She outlines the key players in American and European art, architecture, and literature.

The paintings are well-chosen and include Fernand Lungren's "Washington Square North, New York City," John Singer Sargent's "In the Luxembourg Gardens," Ralph Curtis's "Drifting on the Lagoon, Venice," and George Wesley Bellows's "Tennis at Newport."
