Overview

This excellent overview of 20th-century American sculpture offers a rare opportunity for art lovers, history enthusiasts, and armchair travelers to visit an intimate gardent that adjoins the most famous house in America.

Since 1994, the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden at the White House has hosted eight exhibitions, featuring sculpture by Isamu Noguchi, Georgia O'Keefe, Alexander Calder, Allan Houser, Martin Puryear, and many other outstanding artists. Each show was curated by a major American museum and photographed by David Finn to create a lasting record. Those striking images, together with Finn's notes about each work, may now be enjoyed in this book.

A foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton describes the inception of the idea for the exhibitions, and an introduction by White House curator Betty C. Monkman details the history of the gracious Jacqueline Kennedy Garden.
