John Walker McCoubrey

We at Penn Press were saddened by the news of the death of John Walker McCoubrey, emeritus professor in the Department of the History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania. McCoubrey died on February 6 in his home in Philadelphia at the age of 86. Among his many publications is American Tradition in Painting, a classic text on what makes American painting distinctly American.  More details on his life and work, including information on contributing to the John McCoubrey & Malcolm Campbell Student Travel Funds, are available in his February 14, 2010 Philadelphia Inquirer obituary.
