Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Avid art collectors and philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad have assembled a diverse collection of work from big names in contemporary art, as revealed by this book, published in conjunction with a Los Angeles County Museum of Art exhibition drawn from their collections. An interview with the Broads, disclosing their approach to collecting for both investment and edification, is followed by four contextual essays by prominent curators and academics, each punctuated by extensive sections of color plates. Since the Broads collected widely in the work of Cy Twombly, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Anselm Kiefer, and many others, the writers are able to outline several strains of recent art history without straying from the collection at hand. But the essays are incidental in comparison to the full-page reproductions on heavy stock, which will entice those curious about the above-mentioned artists, as well as about Californians Ed Ruscha and Sharon Lockhardt. A checklist of works further defines the exhibition. This is a much more complete overview of this important collection than Compassion and Protest: Recent Social and Political Art from Eli Broad Family Foundation (Abbeville, 1991), a thematic work that focused on 18 artists from the 1980s. Recommended for contemporary art collections. Carolyn Kuebler, "Library Journal" Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
