Description

Chapter in Art at Colby : celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Colby College Museum of Art, exhibition and publication organized by Sharon Corwin, Elizabeth Finch, and Lauren Lessing ; edited by Joseph N. Newland.

Book Description:

With more than 170 artworks and commissioned texts, including original poems, by 98 writers and artists--such as Barbara Haskell, Bill Berkson, Carol Troyen, Michael Leja, Rachael Ziady DeLue, Geoffrey Batchen, Sanford Schwartz, Anne M. Wagner, Ron Padgett, Irving Sandler and Lydia Yee--Art at Colby highlights artworks that represent the full scope of the museum's superb holdings. The works span the entire history of American art (with a particularly fine selection of painting from New York since 1960), and also include examples of European and Asian works. Texts by a range of writers--scholars, curators, critics and artists--are paired with gorgeous reproductions of pieces from the collection: James Cuno on Henri Fantin-Latour, for instance, Rackstraw Downes on John Marin, Alex Katz on Winslow Homer and Richard Hell on Joe Brainard.
