Charles F. Montgomery and Florence M. Montgomery: A Tribute

Edited by Barbara M. Ward and Gerald W. R. Ward
Foreword by Alan Shestack
Introduction by Wendell Garrett
Poem by Constance Clement
Remarks by Charles F. Montgomery

When the curator and professor of American art Charles F. Montgomery—pewter expert and author of the influential American Furniture: The Federal Period—died in February 1978 before this tribute to him and his wife could be published, the book became a unique and fitting memorial. In addition to his brilliant, concise “Some Remarks on the Practice and Science of Connoisseurship,” first published in 1961, contents include an affectionate foreword by then-director of the Yale University Art Gallery, Alan Shestack; a poem by Constance Clement; and detailed chronologies and bibliographies for both Charles and Florence Montgomery, a curator of textiles at the Winterthur Museum, Delaware.
