One of the world's great cultural, research and educational centres, The Huntington, located in San Marino, California and best known for its renowned collection of British and European art, is home to an astonishing library, art collection and botanical gardens. Until now, no book has been dedicated to featuring the institution's important - and insufficiently known - collection of American art from Copley to Warhol. Coinciding with the American gallery's thirtieth anniversary, this book, with a design both innovative and beautiful, features full-page reproductions of one hundred-plus paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, drawings, prints and photographs. Accompanied by thoughtful historical and contextual essays, American Made celebrates a collection that began with a gift of fifty master paintings but that now includes over 12,000 objects, making The Huntington one of the best repositories of American art in the country.
Jessica Todd Smith is the Chief Curator of American Art at The Huntington.
