Product Overview

This new "Museum Studies" volume features significant acquisitions made by the Art Institute of Chicago over the past two years, " "bringing into wide public view the recent collecting activities of one of America''s most prestigious museums.
The forty highlighted works--which have been chosen by the museum''s director-range in date from ancient to modern times and include decorative arts, drawings, paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture, and textiles. Roy Lichtenstein''s impressive "Mirror in Six Parts," a delicately rendered sixteenth-century nativity scene by Fra Bartolommeo, and a sleek "Manhattan" cocktail set by Norman Bel Geddes are among the many objects presented. Each work is illustrated in color and accompanied by a lively entry that discusses its art-historical significance.
