Review:

"Based on extensive research, this important book illuminates the compelling life and work of American realist painter Theresa Bernstein. Bernstein's career spans a century, from her early success in the vibrant New York art world of the 1910s to the diverse portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and prints she produced and exhibited until well past the age of one-hundred. This volume's rich essays and illustrations restore Bernstein to the place she deserves in art history."--Laura R. Prieto, professor of history and women's and gender studies at Simmons College and author of "At Home in the Studio: The Professionalization of Women Artists in America"


--Laura R. Prieto (03/29/2013)

""Theresa Bernstein: A Century in Art" is a major contribution to art history. Although there are exhibition catalogs of Theresa Bernstein's work and her writings, there is no overview of her life and career, so this book is unique in viewing all the aspects of Bernstein's artistic career and her biography, as well as her relationship with contemporary artists."--Alicia Craig Faxon, professor of art history emerita at Simmons College and the author of "Self-Portraits by Women Painters"

Gail Levin and her team of authors have assembled a fascinating account of the life and art of Theresa Bernstein, who came of age in the early years of the twentieth century and painted with a boldness of technique and feeling on a par with John Sloan and Stuart Davis. Indeed, she often surpassed them in terms of the praise showered on her when she exhibited in New York and Gloucester during the interwar years. Eclipsed at midcentury, as so many other women artists were, she is today recognized as a leading artist of the early twentieth-century urban scene. Patricia Hills, professor of art history at Boston University and the author of Painting Harlem Modern: The Art of Jacob Lawrence --Patricia Hills (03/05/2013)"
