This book examines 30 portraits of Henry David Thoreau that were done by American artists between 1854 and the present day. Although Thoreau's features have been used in a bewildering variety of ways to convey a host of messages, there is a remarkable consistency and relevance for us today, in what he was trying to convey to his fellow Americans.

Reviews for Picturing Thoreau: Henry David Thoreau in American Visual Culture

Sullivan is incisive about how and why people portrayed Thoreau and the uses they made of those images...It is an enjoyable and informative book, one that both provides solid information on many images as well as challenges us to respond to Sullivan's interpretation of them.
