Booklist Review

Greatly expanded edition of a title first published in 1985. There are more than 65,000 entries offering very brief Who's Who^-style information on artists who achieved recognition before 1975.


Choice Review

The revised and enlarged edition of this collective biography dwarfs the original edition, expanding it from one to three volumes and to 65,000 from 25,000 entries. It is arranged alphabetically by artists' names, and cross-referenced by first and middle name clarification, married or maiden name, brush name, and variant spellings. Each entry includes birth and death dates, address, education, exhibitions and awards, and major works. A new feature is the comment field, which offers supplementary information such as publications written or illustrated by the artist. Each entry ends with a list of sources used to create the citation. The entries are compiled from Who's Who in American Art (1936/37- ; formerly American Art Annual), and from monographs, exhibition catalogs, and articles. A 31-page bibliography at the end of the set lists the sources cited. The original edition received Art Libraries Society of North America's George Wittenborn Award for excellence of content and production in art publications, and the new edition is also worthy of honor. It is highly recommended for all academic and large public library collections, and for libraries lacking a subscription to Who's Who in American Art. M. Fusich; California State University, Fresno
