Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This extensive catalogue was originally produced in 1976 by the National Gallery of Art to accompany a vast exhibition of Jeffersonian artifacts for the bicentennial of the American Revolution. It brings together works of art including paintings and sculptures that Jefferson admired, works that he owned, portraits and sculptures of himself and his contemporaries, items of material culture, and buildings that Jefferson admired and those that he designed. The entries accompanying the approximately 600 illustrations (a dozen in color) illuminate not only Jefferson's life and work, but also the world of the arts in the era of the American and French Revolutions.
