Carnegie Museum of Art is renowned for its collection of decorative arts and design objects. This volume presents the collection's highlights, from early porcelain to Arts and Crafts furniture to contemporary turned wood. More than 100 illustrated entries detail almost 200 European and American objects from the 1750s to the present.
Andrew Carnegie founded what is arguably the first museum of modern art in the United States. Early acquisitions of works by such artists as James McNeill Whistler laid the foundation for a collection that is distinguished in American art from the mid-19th century to the present.
