Recent Acquisitions in American Art image
by Anna M. Fishaut

The Art & Architecture Library is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, "Recent Acquisitions in American Art." The theme of the show was inspired by the Department of Art & Art History's hosting of an international conference on the changing shape of American art history. All of the featured texts were written by students and faculty in the Department of Art & Art History (with the exception of one text by our own Katie Keller!). It seems a fitting way to celebrate the department's rich contributions to the field.

by Alissa Hafele

In 1824 Conte Leopoldo Cicognara (1767-1834), a poet, amateur artist and a founding father of the discipline of art history, sold his collection of over 5,000 volumes on the subjects of art, architecture, and classical archaeology to the Vatican Library. This collection, the largest in the field at the time, brings together volumes dating from the beginning of printing to Cicognara’s time that include engravings, instructions on drawing and painting, books and pamphlets on museums and private collections, sale catalogs, and much more.
