Oxford Dictionary of American Art and Artists by Anne Lee Morgan

Book Description

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.
