Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This beautifully put together catalog showcases an exhibition of 74 paintings, sculpture, and works on paper from the collection of St. Louis businessman Barney A. Ebsworth, which traveled from Washington s National Gallery to the Seattle Art Museum this year. It s an especially fine example of the art of collecting, with noteworthy pieces superbly exemplifying American art up to the late 1960s. There s an invigorating range of media and schools as well, from abstract canvases by Frank Stella and Jasper Johns to landscapes by John Marin and intimate figurative work by Alice Neel, Georgia O Keefe, and Edward Hopper. Arranged alphabetically by artist, all 74 colorplates are accompanied by almost chapter-length biocritical essays written by curatorial luminaries on the staff of the National Gallery. These short texts are so richly informative that in a sense their educational power compensates for what s surely lost in the visual translation of the adjacent reproductions. As good a simulacrum of actually visiting the museum as can be imagined, this would be a worthy purchase for all academic and large public libraries. Douglas F.
