Choice Review

St. Martin's is publishing a set of topical dictionaries extracted from The Dictionary of Art (34v., CH, Jan'97) with the object of compiling modestly priced volumes on a particular theme (e.g., Dutch painting of the 17th century, From Rembrandt to Vermeer, forthcoming). The articles are reproduced verbatim from the parent set, but many of the bibliographies following each article have been updated. This volume focuses on modern Western styles, including performance art, photorealism, and junk art (but not folk art, outsider art, or vernacular art). Artist biographies are not included. The lack of an index makes subject searching a hit-or-miss adventure. Libraries owning Dictionary of Art need not supplement their reference collections with any of these titles, but smaller libraries lacking the parent set could benefit from the more affordable price and subject coverage of this paperback imprint and its siblings. ; University of Louisiana at Lafayette
