The untold story of the world's premier bourbon and the family that made it #1 American Still Life tells the intertwined true stories of America's favorite whiskey and the family dynasty that produces it to this very day. Jim Beam is the world's top-selling bourbon whiskey, with sales of over five million cases per year. Not a day has passed in the 207 years of Jim Beam's existence when a Beam family member has not been master distiller. Dedicated to quality, and dedicated to the family legacy, the Beams have shepherded their particularly American spirit to the top of their industry. And they've done it in an industry beset by challenges, from government regulation and prohibition, to changing consumer tastes, to fierce new global competition. By creating a brand of unparalleled quality and consistency, and by tying the success of their product with the good name of the family, the Beams have established a lasting legacy as perhaps one of the greatest family business dynasties in American history. Not just a simple history of "America's native spirit" (so named by an act of Congress in 1964) or a simple family history, American Still Life is a story of business success based on quality and attention to detail, constant innovation, revolutionary branding and advertising, and adaptation to the business environment.

Twentieth-century works by some of America's most prominent artists.
Claude Raguet Hirst (1855-1942) - born Claudine - was the only woman acclaimed for painting in the hyper-realistic style of still life painting known as trompe l'oeil (literally, "fools the eye"), which flourished in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. Hirst worked in both oil and watercolor, in intimate scale, displaying a dazzling aptitude for rendering the surfaces and textures of objects. This catalogue and its accompanying exhibition are the first devoted to Hirst's considerable achievements. They demonstrate the artist's transformation of still-life painting by the creation of works to appeal to both men and women, in contrast to her male colleagues who painted primarily for a male audience.
The genre of still life is considered from a wide range of visual perspectives as it spans the history of photography from the early nineteenth century to the present.
