Abstract:

Since its founding more than a century ago, the Museum has actively collected American art in every medium. In 1980 its vast collections of earlier American art were reinstalled in a wing of the Museum devoted to the arts of the United States, and in 1987 the new Southwest Wing will house the Museum's significant collection of twentieth-century painting and sculpture. This volume re-creates this excitement of discovery in more than one hundred reproductions of paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs, as well as of furnishings, porcelain, silver, glass, and costumes- all revealing the fine craftsmanship and imagination that characterize American artists from the Colonial Period to the present day."--Page 2 of cover.
