This catalogue examines the life and work of such prominent American artists as Thomas Hart Benton, Benjamin West, Charles Burchfield and many others, in the context of works on paper. The works featured in the catalogue were created in such media as silver point, gouache, charcoal, ink and watercolor and demonstrate the range of moods and textures inherent in works on paper, as well as a feeling of spontaneity and immediacy. The essays also examine the collection as a whole, discussing the range of styles and genres.

This catalogue of the works of Athens artist Art Rosenbaum accompanies his first major retrospective exhibition and is fully illustrated with 51 full-page color images reflecting the entire checklist of the exhibition. Rosenbaum's paintings show many influences, from the American Scene to self-taught art to German Expressionist prints, and their large scale, complexity and vivid color draw the viewer in. Dennis Harper (Georgia Museum of Art curator of exhibitions), Paul Manoguerra (Georgia Museum of Art curator of American art) and Len Jenkins (playwright) contributed essays to the catalogue, which also includes a 45-minute documentary on DVD titled "It's Not What You Think It Is" and is directed by Neil Rosenbaum.
