Book News
The first edition was published in 1911, and the most recent, the first to be computerized, in 1999. This sixth edition, the first in English, contains over 170,000 entries in 14 volumes. A team of 150 editors, art historians, and translators updated old entries and added new ones, thus continuing the monumental ongoing effort that makes this reference of inestimable value to anyone seeking information about artists from antiquity to the present. Entries are alphabetically arranged and include biographical information, museums and galleries displaying work, and auction records; some also include graphics (artist signatures, monograms and stamps of sale) and bibliographies of written works about the artist. Charts in the front matter indicate the changing purchasing power since the early 20th century of the US dollar, the British pound, the French Franc, and the Euro (since 2002). This essential reference was published in France by Editions Gründ and is distributed in the United States by Omnigraphics. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
