This book reminds us that an artist's own statements about his or her art are important primary documents for students of modern art, and it provides a way to locate this valuable material. Robertson writes, "Frequently, an artist will speak and write about not only his art, but also about his life and training, his influences and associates, his tastes and aesthetic theories, and technical procedures in such a way that things otherwise unknown and unknowable are revealed."
The second edition of this unique index will be welcomed by scholars and researchers in the field. Subtitled An Index to Writing, Statements, and Interviews by Artists, Architects, and Designers, it has a broader scope than the 1985 edition and includes such art forms as jewelry, book arts and bookbinding, papermaking, commercial and product design, and computer graphics and imagery. This edition has been expanded to include 27,500 citations (up from 14,000 in the first edition), the number of artists listed has increased from 5,000 to 14,400, and the contents of more than 930 publications are analyzed. Artists and sources are from all over the world and include such names as Ansel Adams, Georges Braque, Walter Gropius, Robert Venturi, and Bev Doolittle. Keys to abbreviations and information in citations and a complete bibliography make this work easy to use. It belongs in art and museum libraries, academic and large public libraries, and others where interest warrants.
