Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
From the 1870s through the 1920s, wealthy American industrialists were eager to collect works by such internationally acclaimed artists as John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Albert Pinkham Ryder, and Louis Comfort Tiffany. Artists and patrons alike of this so-called "gilded age" were fascinated by foreign travel, exotic cultures, visionary themes, and dramatic landscapes. The paintings and sculptures in this collection reflect these interests as well as the luxurious lifestyle of the wealthy patrons who commissioned family portraits. This beautiful catalogue, produced to accompany a traveling exhibition, presents 52 works of this period by 42 American artists. Each painting and sculpture is reproduced on its own page in full color and faces a succinct but informative discussion of the artist and subject, along with a brief stylistic analysis of the work. The discussions are entertaining and easy to understand, and the effect is that of a private gallery tour given by an insightful curator. Students of American history and art lovers of all ages will enjoy the variety of images and styles so handsomely presented in this volume. (Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum) KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Watson-Guptill, 108p, 24cm, 99-050977, $19.95. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Rhonda Cooper; Dir., University Art Gallery, Stony Brook, NY, July 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 4)
Library Journal
These picture books accompany four of the eight exhibitions traveling through 2002 while the National Museum of American Art undergoes renovation. They cover periods or themes in American art and history--the West from the Louisiana Purchase to the Taos School, young America from 1760 to the Civil War, the Gilded Age from the Civil War into the 1920s, and American Impressionism from 1880 to 1930. Organized alphabetically by artist, each book presents single-page color plates facing brief entries of 100-150 words written by the museum's staff. With the minimal text and the arrangement by artist, the books lack sustained arguments. Nevertheless, they give a broad overview of their particular periods, including many famous and less-well-known works, and will make quite affordable additions to public libraries.
