Abstract:

Accompanying a major reinstallation of the illustrious permanent collection, this volume gathers fifty "spotlight" essays exploring individual works from the thirteenth to the twenty-first century. Illuminating both famous and lesser known works by a range of artists from Durer to Rembrandt, Pollock to de Kooning, this book departs from conventional "masterpieces" or period approaches to present a sampling of ongoing and new research from a variety of scholarly voices. Thirty-two contributors offer perspectives on works of their own choosing from the museum's collection, which has been growing since 1881. More than a catalog, this book is a vivid celebration of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum's storied history of collecting and scholarship.
