Pepperdine University Libraries has just acquired the online edition of The Grove Encyclopedia of American Art.
The Grove Encyclopedia of American Art (GEAA) deals with all aspects of American art and architecture from Native American art to Colonial art to contemporary American art. Drawing upon the expansive scholarship in The Dictionary of Art (DOA) and adding hundreds of new entries not previously covered in the DOA, GEAA is a comprehensive and current reference resource for information on this important area for students, researchers, and the general public. There are articles on all subject areas in American fine art including: biographies of major artists, architects and patrons, architecture, painting, new media, photography, sculpture, installation art, performance art, new media art, art education, and more. GEAA will also meet educational interest in this area by providing thorough coverage of American art with an array of articles that are accessible to secondary school students, undergraduate college students, and general readers. GEAA also offers over 600 images.
Joan Marter, the editor, is Distinguished Professor of Art History, Rutgers University and editor in chief of Woman’s Art Journal. She is also the author of Abstract Expressionism: The International Context (Rutgers, 2007) and American Sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Yale, 2001).
