A Community of Collectors

75 Anniversary Gifts to the Seattle Art Museum

Edited by Chiyo Ishikawa
This volume celebrates an unprecedented series of gifts to the Seattle Art Museum on the occasion of its 75th anniversary. The gifts--nearly 1,000 works from more than forty collections--have significantly enhanced the museum's holdings and reinforced the museum's dedication to artistic excellence. A Community of Collectors includes essays by nine curators who have selected some of the most significant works of art given, pledged, and promised to the museum to be featured. The book offers a sense of the collection's depth and future direction and highlights this gem shinning in the Emerald City.

From seventeenth-century Dutch still lifes to Roy Lichtenstein's Still Life with Silver Pitcher; paintings by Marsden Hartley, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper and a sculpture of Gwendolyn Knight by Augusta Savage to Asmat war shields from New Guinea; the works considered here touch on the extraordinary richness and variety of the Seattle Art Museum's collections.

The book includes essays by Barbara Brotherton, Michael Darling, Julie Emerson, Chiyo Ishikawa, Patricia Junker, Pam McClusky, Marisa Sanchez, Yukuko Shirahara, and Josh Yiu.
