Cincinnati Art Museum by Curators of the Cincinnati Art Museum
Book DescriptionAs one of the oldest art institutions in the United States, the Cincinnati Art Museum has an unparalleled collection of over 60,000 works spanning six thousand years. This beautifully illustrated new volume highlights over 300 works of art from this unique collection, featuring pieces from Egypt, Greece, Rome, Asia and the Middle-East, Africa, North and South America and Europe, with examples of painting and sculpture, decorative arts, prints, drawings, photographs, costumes and textiles. An historical emphasis on collecting pieces representing the local Aesthetic movement has led to a remarkable holding of 19th- and early 20th-century decorative art. Featured works include a bedroom suite from the Mitchell and Rammelsberg Furniture Co. (1847-81), an 1850s carved oak mantel by Henry and William Fry, made for Joseph Longworth, one of the founders of the Museum, a vase from the Cincinnati Rookwood Pottery Company, (1880-1967) founded by Longworth's daughter, and a striking pair of Art Deco skyscraper bookcases by Paul Frankl. Divided into 16 sections with an introductory essay, each of the highlighted works is accompanied by a short essay.
