About the Book
This book is an intensive study of Williams’s art and scene making, utilizing interviews and the extensive Charles Truett Williams Papers held at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Smithsonian. Eminent scholars Katie Robinson Edwards, Jonathan Frembling, and S. Janelle Montgomery, in a series of three essays and an accompanying biographical timeline, explore the remarkably under-studied life and world of this midcentury Texas genius.
The Amon Carter Museum of American Art was established through the generosity of Amon G. Carter Sr. (1879-1955) to house his collection of paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Our mission is to collect, preserve, and exhibit the finest examples of American art; and to serve all communities through exhibitions, publications, and experiences devoted to the celebration of American creativity.
