Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Addison Gallery, established in 1930 on the campus of the Phillips Academy, is a small, progressive museum of American art that seems to have flourished and grown in importance for several reasons: a history of intelligent and sometimes daring acquisitions, enlightened directors, its role as an educational resource, and significant ties to the art world. Alumni-artists range from Frank Stella to Peter Halley. This large and impressive book includes informative essays on the gallery's history, patronage, and place in the tradition of American art collecting and teaching, provided by Jock Reynolds and Faxon, the director and associate director respectively, as well as writer Avis Berman (Jacob Kainen, Smithsonian, 1993). Also included is a selective catalog (313 works out of more than 12,000) with brief descriptions. The illustrations are ample and clear. One drawback is the often confusing layout of the catalog (reproductions don't always immediately correspond with text). Highly recommended, but only for libraries with a strong regional or American emphasis.-Heidi Martin Winston, NYPL
