A. E. Gallatin published the monograph Charles Demuth in 1927, the same year the artist was included in the inaugural exhibition of his Gallery of Living Art at New York University. The first book devoted exclusively to Demuth's art, it contained 28 illustrations surveying the artist's work in watercolor, tempera and oil. Gallatin had first published Demuth's work in the 1922 volume, American Watercolorists, drawing attention to the singular accomplishments of ten important American artists working in the watercolor medium, including Demuth, James McNeill Whistler, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, and John Marin.
