We are very proud to announce Jane Kamensky's A Revolution in Color: The World of John Singleton Copley, from W. W. Norton & Company, has won the 17th Annual Massachusetts Book Awards Nonfiction category.

An intimate portrait of the artist and his extraordinary times, Jane Kamensky’s A Revolution in Color masterfully reveals the world of the American Revolution, a place in time riven by divided loyalties and tangled sympathies. Much like the world in which he lived, Copley’s life and career were marked by spectacular rises and devastating falls. But though his ambivalence cost him dearly, the painter’s achievements in both Britain and America made him a towering figure of both nations’ artistic legacies.
