Nantucket Spirit: The Art and Life of Elizabeth Rebecca Coffin
by Margaret Moore Booker
This elegantly written and richly illustrated volume brings to life an extraordinary Nantucket artist, whose story and work are richly deserving of wider recognition. While making her mark in the competitive New York art world, Elizabeth R. Coffin (1850 – 1930) preserved in her canvases the people, landscapes and rural lifestyles that were fading from the island.
