Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This authoritative, handsomely illustrated volume celebrates Harvard's three museumsthe Fogg, which specializes in the art of Europe and North America from the Middle Ages to the present; the Busch-Reisinger, which is devoted to the art of German-speaking countries and related cultures of central and northern Europe; and the Arthur M. Sackler, which concentrates on ancient, Asian, Islamic and later Indian art. An introduction by Cuno, director of the museums, documents the history of the collections, with emphasis on the roles played by important donors and scholars. Following are sections devoted to each of the museums, with color reproductions of many of the collections' treasures, such as the Busch-Reisinger's Light-Space Modulator, one of Lszl Moholy-Nagy's most important works; the Fogg's moving Fra Angelico Crucifixion; and the Sackler's lovely Fayum Portrait of a Woman with Earrings. There are introductory essays by the curators of the various departments and commentaries by curators, art historians and doctoral candidates. Published on the centenary of the Fogg Art Museum, this is a scholarly tribute to three superb teaching collections that have grown into major museums. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Although it has been published to mark the centenary of the founding of one of America's most prominent art museumsthe Fogg Art Museum of Harvard Universitythis book is not limited to the Fogg alone. It also features the collections of Harvard's other museums, the Busch-Reisinger Museum and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum. The Fogg (the oldest of the three) focuses on European and North American art from the Middle Ages to the present, the Busch-Reisinger Museum features the art of German-speaking countries and related cultures of central and Northern Europe, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum is devoted to ancient, Asian, Islamic, and later Indian art works. Chapters on each museum forms the book's three main sections. Included in each is an introductory essay written by the museum's head curator, full-color illustrations of pieces from their collections (a diverse selection of ceramics, coins, drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, and textiles), and scholarly descriptions of each piece and its provenance. Essential for art libraries.Margarete Gross, Chicago P.L.
