Art for Yale: A History of the Yale University Art Gallery

Susan B. Matheson

This book tells the definitive story of the Yale University Art Gallery—its collections, donors, artists, faculty, students, and staff—from its founding in 1832 through the present day. Splendid archival photos and images from the collection complement author Susan Matheson’s narrative of the rise of the first college art museum in the United States and some of its most exciting chapters, including the 1867 gift of Old Master paintings from James Jackson Jarves and the 1942 arrival of an extraordinary modern collection formed by Katherine S. Dreier and Marcel Duchamp. A comprehensive list of exhibitions is provided.
