Akron Art Museum Art Since 1850

One hundred paintings, sculptures and photographs from the collection of the Akron Art Museum are lavishly reproduced and thoughtfully discussed in this volume. An essay on the changing nature of the collection since the Museum's founding introduces the volume. This is followed by one hundred full-page illustrations, each with a brief essay written by either a member of the Museum staff or one of 16 guest authors. The selection of work stresses the collection's three areas of special strength - turn-of-the-century American painting, painting and sculpture since 1960, and twentieth-century photography. Artists featured include William Merritt Chase, Thomas Wilmer Dewing, Philip Guston, Nancy Graves, Chuck Close, Claes Oldenburg, Lewis Hine, Lee Friedlander, Gilbert & George, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lari Pittman.
