The American Leonardo: A Life of Samuel F. B. Morse by Carleton Mabee Morse, the artist and the telegraph inventor of New York City and Poughkeepsie, is no easy subject.
Nicolai Cikovsky Jr., Curator of American Painting at the National Gallery, observes in a new introduction that the difficulty arises because of "the virtually irreconcilable complexities and contradictions of his character, his mind, and his achievements. It is a very human Morse that emerges from Mr. Mabee's pages." Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
