Books - Exhibition Catalogues and Other Books on Art
Records for more than 37,000 exhibition and collection catalogues are
presented in the database, including virtually all of the titles that
have been made available over the years through Worldwide's library program.
Individually selected on the basis of their value as art resources from
the thousands of catalogues we have examined each year, these titles include
a great majority of the most significant catalogues published over the
past three decades by European and North American institutions, along
with a vast array of other noteworthy titles.
The American nation has set aside a place to keep generations of remarkable
Americans in the company of their fellow citizens: the National Portrait
Gallery. It is the place where the arts tell the stories of lives lived
across centuries of our experience as a society, a society that continually
reinvents itself and continually tests its ideals. Through the visual
arts, the performing arts, the literary arts, and the electronic arts,
the National Portrait Gallery provides a stage for George Washington and
Martin Luther King, for Marilyn Monroe and Babe Ruth, among thousands
of others, to share with us who they were and what they mean to us.
