The definitive survey of art about this national treasure, from Albert Bierstadt to Ansel Adams. Located between California and Nevada, the vast body of water known as Lake Tahoe has lured artists to its shores for centuries. This lavishly illustrated, large-scale book celebrates Lake Tahoe, as well as Pyramid Lake, Donner Lake, and the surrounding Sierra Nevada region's magnificent scenic beauty, through more than 350 paintings, photographs, buildings, and objects. This deluxe volume features lush landscape paintings by Albert Bierstadt, Marianne North, and Thomas Moran; photographs by Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, and Edward Weston; Native American Washoe baskets; historical maps and sketches by the region's early explorers; ephemera related to Tahoe tourism of the 1940s-60s; and architectural drawings, such as Frank Lloyd Wright's proposed cabin community in Emerald Bay and the historic Glen Alpine Springs Lodge design by Bernard Maybeck. Lake Tahoe continues to attract artists, writers, designers, scientists, and other visitors who recognize the unique qualities that the destination has to offer.
