Overview


-- Represented are major holdings or works by John Singleton Coplay, Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent.
-- The Collection ranges from Colonial portraits to works by Hopper, Stella, O'Keeffe and Pollock.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, owns one of the nation's preeminent collections of American paintings. Every painting in the Museum's collection - more than 1,600 in all - is recorded and illustrated in this book, the first comprehensive catalogue of the collection to appear in nearly thirty years.

The American holdings at the Museum grew by gift and purchase, and this catalogue and its introductory essay trace the evolution of the collection from an important gathering of local artists to its present status as a truly encyclopedic representation of American art.

Extensive new research, resulting in a significant number of changed attributions and titles (summarizes in the book's five indices), make this catalogue an indispensable tool for scholars and American art enthusiasts alike.
