Color-illustrated wraps. 139 pp. with 20 color, 62 bw plates. Catalogue from the exhibition of April to August 1981. The 26-page essay by Stiles Tuttle Colwill includes 16 reproductions of newspaper accounts by or about Guy. He was one of our earliest (and self-taught) landscape painters, an opportunist and eccentric Englishman who simultaneously pursued half a dozen diverse vocations. Includes 27 oil paintings (with details and annotation) of views of Baltimore and Maryland (often with much artistic license); 23 pieces of furniture by John and Hugh Finlay with views painted on by Guy; 11 pages of recorded and unlocated works by Francis Guy; 6 works related to the work of Guy; 6 works formerly attributed to Guy; 33 works by contemporaries; 4 pages of painters listed in the Baltimore city directories 1796-1816; 4 pages of his religious writings; and a 3-page bibliography. A fascinating "Guy!" (Inventory #: 8872.1)
