SPOTLIGHTS: COLLECTED BY THE MILDRED LANE KEMPER ART MUSEUM. Sabine Eckmann. Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, Washington University, St. Louis, 2016. Distributed by University of Chicago Press. 180 pp. with 75 col. ills. 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9780936316420 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: In 2015, the U.S. News & World Report raved that the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum "houses one of the most distinguished university collections in the country." Spotlights on the Collection commemorates the museum's ten-year anniversary in its new building at Washington University in St. Louis. Accompanying a major reinstallation of the illustrious permanent collection, this volume gathers fifty "spotlight" essays exploring individual works from the thirteenth to the twenty-first century. Illuminating both famous and lesser known works by a range of artists -- from Durer to Rembrandt, Pollock to de Kooning -- this book departs from conventional "masterpieces" or period approaches to present a sampling of ongoing and new research from a variety of scholarly voices. Approximately forty contributors offer perspectives on works of their own choosing from the museum's collection, which has been growing since 1881. More than a catalog, this book is a vivid celebration of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum's storied history of collecting and scholarship.
