It is organized neither chronologically nor alphabetically, but is rather intended to convey the experience of visiting the collection, through the successive installations of the collection since it was opened to the public in Miami in 1996." "Neither a catalogue nor an art history manual, this book is a collection of images of contemporary art at its best. It also includes an introduction by collection curator Mark Coetzee, an interview with the Rubells on the collection and the process of collecting, and a full list of plates."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This latest volume from Asleson, a Huntington Library Research associate and specialist in Victorian art, should generate some interest in a 19th-century British artist who is not as well known as his Pre-Raphaelite contemporaries. The first work on Albert Moore in 100 years, this book focuses on the artist's interaction with the Victorian art world as well as his formal pictorial concerns. Aselson demonstrates the art-for-art's-sake philosophy behind the artist's neoclassical maidens; the elaborately folded antique draperies, patterned decorative fabrics, and limited color schemes of Moore's paintings illustrate his belief in the primacy of beauty and style over subject matter in art. Aselon shows that stylistic influences in Moore's art included poses from Greek vases and sculpture, Liberty fabrics, and Moorish architecture. Also interesting and provocative is her discussion of the friendship between Moore and James McNeill Whistler and the inference that Whistler appropriated Moore's artistic theory as his own. In addition, the author looks at the politics of Victorian art institutions. This is an excellent book filled with gorgeous color reproductions. Recommended for general collections as well as libraries that support art programs.--Sandra Rothenberg, Framingham State Coll. Lib., MA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

    Wonderful!

    I love this book, it was great to read and the pictures are outstanding, but my only disappointment with this book is that all of his paintings are not pictured.
