Descripción

The American Art Forum, a small group of collectors from across the United States, was begun twenty years ago by Charles C Eldredge while he was director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. By founding this group, he put the museum in touch with many of the finest collectors of American art. The Forum plays a vital role in introducing far-flung collectors to each other and to the rich variety of public museums across the United States. It is an informal conference for the exchange of news and ideas, held in the far-ranging and ever-fascinating regions of a vast country. The Forum has visited all the biggest cities in the United States and explored public and private collections from all points of the compass. Now, as part of the Forum's twentieth anniversary celebrations, the Smithsonian American Art Museum is proud to offer Variations on America, an exhibition and accompanying volume of seventy-two treasured artworks collected by members of the Forum and selected for the exhibition by the Museum's curators. Chief curator Eleanor Jones Harvey, deputy chief curator George Gurney, senior curators Virginia M Mecklenburg and Joann Moser, former Luce Foundation Centre curator George Speer, and curatorial assistant Elaine Yau present significant and lively contributions about these works. 91 4 colour illustrations.
