This catalogue of the Georgia Museum of Art’s permanent collection is both a tribute to Alfred Heber Holbrook, the museum’s founder, and a record of his legacy, which began in 1945 when he gave one hundred works of American art to the people of Georgia through its flagship university. These works formed the foundation of the museum’s current collection of more than 8,000 art objects. Published to coincide with the museum’s grand reopening in January 2011 after a 30,000-square-foot expansion, this catalogue features one hundred significant American paintings that, for the first time, will be on continual display in the building’s new permanent-collection galleries.
This publication is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
