This elegant hardcover celebrates one small slice of John Wilmerding’s work: the twenty-five Masterpiece columns he has written for The Wall Street Journal between 2006 and the present. Each succinct, accessible essay integrates a detailed visual analysis of a major American cultural artifact with insights not only into the art and its creator, but also into the national context at the time it was made.
