Description

This comprehensive dictionary is an indispensible guide to American art from colonial times to contemporary postmodernism. It is the most extensive, most up-to-date dictionary on American art currently available.

Auteur
Ann Lee Morgan works as an independent scholar in Princeton, New Jersey. She has taught history at the University of Illinois at Chicago and worked in publishing as an editor of art reference books. She specializes in American art, particularly twentieth-century painting.

Résumé
In this dictionary of American art, 945 alphabetically arranged entries cover painters, sculptors, graphic artists, photographers, printmakers, and contemporary hybrid artists, along with important aspects of the cultural infrastructure. Ranging from 17th century colonial art through contemporary postmodernism, entries offer concise, informative summaries incorporating up-to-date scholarly research and critical appraisal. The book profiles hundreds of artists, providing meticulously researched biographical data, and goes beyond the common dictionary entry to describe and evaluate their work, and contextualize their contributions. In addition to clearly defining movements and terms, the dictionary also characterizes museums, schools, and other institutions, as well as art writers, collectors, and dealers. This compact, fully cross-referenced volume will interest scholars, students, museum-goers, artists, and historians. Although there are no illustrations, Morgan's entries do much to convey artists' personal styles and aesthetics.
