A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

As this great Pittsburgh museum approaches its 100th anniversary, it celebrates its incomparable collection of some 400 American paintings and sculptures dating from the 18th to the mid-20th century, especially strong in early modernism and artists of Western Pennsylvania. Includes biographies of 200 artists and essays on each work of art.

From Library Journal:

The Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh is one of this country's premier art institutions. It is a pity that a museum collection so deserving of fresh attention is presented in such an intrinsically unexciting, Brittanica -like fashion. Each of the nearly 200 painters and sculptors who fall within the book's restrictive parameters is discussed for a few paragraphs, which are usually accompanied by tiny black-and-white illustrations of his or her work. Out of 400 works of art, only 37 are reproduced in color. Crowded at the front, these color plates precede an uninteresting account of the institution's history, while the tedious, alphabetically arranged artist bios make up the bulk of the volume. A quick perusal has the reader longing for a curatorial overview of the entire collection and a greater emphasis on illustration. More like an archival-searching aid than an art book meant to inspire, this work can boast as perhaps its sole selling point the single-source availability of the individual biographies, many of which cover artists seldom profiled elsewhere. Still, this need only be purchased by those libraries wishing to achieve comprehensive coverage of American art history.
