This definitive guide to the Clark Art Institute and its collections features eighty-four masterpieces in color, each with an accompanying essay, representing the full range of its collections: paintings and sculpture, drawings and prints, decorative arts, and rare books. Beginning with an early-fourteenth-century altarpiece by Ugolino da Siena and Renaissance works by Piero della Francesca, Hans Memling, and Domenico Ghirlandaio, the book also includes canvases by Claude, Gainsborough, Fragonard, Goya, Turner, and Corot; academic masterpieces by Stevens, Gérôme, Bouguereau, Alma-Tadema, and Tissot; works on paper by Dürer, Rubens, Rembrandt, Munch, and Picasso; and porcelains from Vincennes and Worcester. Among the highlights are the Clark’s world-renowned concentrations of French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism (Degas, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec), American nineteenth-century art (Cassatt, Homer, Remington, Sargent), and English and American seventeenth- and eighteenth-century silver. Written by present and former staff members of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, The Clark is a glorious treasure for the armchair connoisseur and still finer as a memento of a visit to this extraordinary collection.
