Summary

Summary

The Grove Dictionary of Art, the award-winning 34-volume set that was launched to critical acclaim in 1996, represents the knowledge of more than 6,800 of the world's leading scholars. It is now the preeminent reference resource for the visual arts. The new GroveART series makes this comprehensive and authoritative art scholarship accessible and affordable to all audiences for the first time. Complete with a multipage color plate section as well as extensive black and white images throughout, each volume in the series will focus on one particularly popular area or period of art history. Broad enough to appeal to the general reader, but thorough enough for the art historian, each book will reflect the depth and excellence of coverage that brought such acclaim to The Grove Dictionary of Art.

From Renaissance to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, and from the Gothic Revival to Art Nouveau, the rich and varied history of Western Art is narrated through more than 180 articles on its styles andmovements. Covering all forms of the visual arts -- architecture and decorative arts as well as painting and sculpture -- this book describes the most important features of popular European and American movements, such as Louis XV, Biedermeier, the Hudson River School, and Colonial Revival.

Choice Review

A collection of articles on styles and movements in the visual arts, this is one of five attractively illustrated paperbacks extracted from The Dictionary of Art (34 v., CH, Jan'97), published to make some part of the Dictionary more generally available than it is in those research libraries that can afford the full encyclopedia. The editor of the paperback series, Jane Turner, also edited the highly acclaimed full set. The selections in this smaller extract consist of essays describing place, time, and distinctive styles of artistic expression, mainly in western Europe, 1400-1900 CE. "Grove" in the title derives from Sir George Grove, compiler of the original version of Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians (1878-89), which Turner in her introduction calls "our renowned sister publication." Recommended for any art collection that does not hold the full dictionary. ; University of California
