Overview

Excerpt from The Museum: A Manual of the Housing and Care of Art Collections

The object of this little book is to put before those interested in the administration of collections the result of several years of study of the museums of Europe and America. It cannot claim the distinction of bringing new ideas to a field where so many men of genius have long been working; it can only hope to call attention to the results of the constant experiments being made by those already in the field.

The author is under deep obligations to the many museum directors who have generously given their counsel and the results of their experience. Especial thanks are due to Professor Adolfo Venturi, Dr. J. B. Carter and the American Academy in Rome, His Excellency Dr. Bode, Dr. Karl Koetschau, Dr. Camille Enlart and Dr. Edward Robinson.
