This fully illustrated checklist of paintings and miniatures in the Philadelphia Museum of Art represents the first time that the complete collection has been reproduced in a single volume. Divided into four major sections (European painting before 1900, American painting before 1900, twentieth-century painting, and miniatures), the book illustrates nearly four thousand paintings, accompanied by details about each work. A comprehensive index enables the reader to survey the collection according to artists' names, previous attributions, named sitters, donors, and accession numbers. Assembled by the curatorial staff of the Museum, with additional input from numerous independent scholars, this important reference offers a handsome, easy-to-use guide to one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive collections of paintings.
