Meant to Be Shared : The Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints Hardback
This important volume offers the first comprehensive look at the Arthur Ross Collection-more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, French, and Spanish prints-and is published to mark the inaugural exhibition of the collection in its new home at the Yale University Art Gallery.
Highlights include superb etchings by Canaletto and Tiepolo; the four volumes of Piranesi's Antiquities of Rome, as well as his famous Vedute (Views) and Carceri (Prisons); Goya's Tauromaquia in its first edition of 1816; an extremely rare etching by Edgar Degas; and numerous other 19th-century French prints, by Eugene Delacroix, Honore Daumier, Edouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cezanne, and others.
The accompanying essays discuss the life of Arthur Ross, a significant philanthropist who funded several arts institutions; the formation of the collection and the art-historical significance of the works; and several thematic approaches to studying the collection, reinforcing its legacy as an important teaching resource.
