The Paintings of J.O.J. Frost: An American Story is the first comprehensive treatment of an endearing American artist. Vivid images, from public and private collections, present an unprecedented number of Frost’s engaging works. The tale of the unexpected twists and turns that saved these treasures from the trash heap together with comments from art critics capture Frost’s evolution from local ridicule to international recognition. This book offers a unique view of America’s past, a universal story of art’s struggle for its rightful place, a delightful visual feast, and a memorable entry into the world of J.O.J. Frost, the fisherman who painted history.
