Overview

Published to accompany an exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York then travelling to Fort Worth and Washington, DC in 2003-2004. This handsome, slightly oversize catalogue (10.25x11.25") contains four major essays on the 19th-century artist Gifford (he was also one of the founders of the Met) in addition to catalogue entries on the 70 paintings in the exhibition. The essays discuss Gifford's treatment of landscape, the paintings he made of the Catskills, his use of art to record his travels, and the aesthetic proclivities of his patrons. The catalogue essays are lengthy and include reproductions of preparatory drawings and related material as well as half- or three-quarter-page color plates of Gifford's paintings, many of which were small in scale. A chronology of his career and a selected bibliography are provided. Avery is a curator at the Met, Kelly is a curator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. The volume is distributed by Yale U. Press (their ISBN is 0-300-10184-8). Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
