The Worlds of Jacob Eichholtz explores the life and times of an oft-overlooked figure in early American art. Jacob Eichholtz (1776-1842) began his career in the metal trades but with much practice, some encouragement from his friend Thomas Sully, and a few weeks instruction from America's preeminent portraitist, Gilbert Stuart, he transformed himself into one of the nation's most productive portrait painters. Eichholtz worked primarily in the Middle Atlantic region from his homes in Lancaster and Philadelphia. While Stuart and Sully concentrated on the elite of American society, Eichholtz captured the images of a rising middle class with its craftsmen, merchants, doctors, lawyers, and their families. From a lifetime that spanned the American Revolution to the Industrial Revolution, and a career that produced more than 800 paintings, Eichholtz offers a collective portrait of early American culture in the first half of the nineteenth century. The Worlds of Jacob Eichholtz begins with four insightful essays by Thomas Ryan, David Jaffee, Carol Faill, and Peter Seibert that examine Eichholtz's life and work. The second part of the book-a visual essay-brings together for the first time more than 100 color reproductions of Eichholtz's work. These images include over 60 oil-on-canvas portraits, more than 30 profiles on panel, and seven of the landscape, historical, or biblical paintings he produced. Also illustrated are artifacts associated with Eichholtz and his family, examples of the tinsmith's and coppersmith's trade, and the work of artists who influenced his career. The Worlds of Jacob Eichholtz promises to be the finest color catalog of Eichholtz's oeuvre for years to come. This book, made possible by the Richard C. von Hess Foundation, accompanies a major three-part exhibition that will run concurrently at the Lancaster County Historical Society, the Heritage Center Museum of Lancaster County, and the Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College from April through December 2003.

Review:

"This one ably meets that test by expanding scholarly understanding of Eichholtz and laying the groundwork for further study."-Wendy Bellion, William and Mary Quarterly "All in all, The Worlds of Jacob Eicholtz is an important addition to the literature on the artist, especially if used with Beal's catalogue raisonne. Of particular note are the illustrations, for clearly much care was taken to ensure accurate color reproduction."-David Meschutt, Winterthur Portfolio "The Worlds of Jacob Eichholtz adds significantly to our understanding of portraiture in nineteenth-century America and provides a model for investigating and contextualizing, historically and art historically, a single artist's achievements."-Anne Verplanck, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography "Numerous first-rate color reproduction and material presentation; superb bibliography; fine index."-J. Weidman, Choice "Most insightful and interesting."-Robert Reed, Inside Antique's Good Reading
