Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is publishing a new guide to its collection on the occasion of the opening of a major new building in March 2000. In a groundbreaking plan, this title presents color reproductions of more than 500 artworks from its vast collection. The entries are enriched by literary excerpts, historical photographs, explanations of artistic techniques and quotations by and about artists. An introductory chapter takes a look behind the scenes at the museum, and presents photo essays about conservation and exhibition planning. Intended for the general visitor, the major purpose of the guide is to promote an active curiosity about the art in the museum's collection, whether the book is read before, during, or after a visit to the museum itself.
