A Catalogue of the Collection of American Paintings in the Corcoran Gallery of Art: Volume 2, Painters Born from 1850 to 1910

Dorothy W. Phillips
Published 1973
220 pages

This volume, the second of two on the American paintings in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, was written by longtime Corcoran curator of collections Dorothy Phillips. Covering American paintings in the Corcoran collection by artists born from 1850 to 1910, the catalog contains black-and-white illustrations, as well as eight color plates, and short entries on each work with provenance information and published references provided where possible. The catalog includes works by artists such as Theodore Robinson, John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Ernest Lawson, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, Kay Sage, Isabel Bishop, and Mark Rothko. Artists are organized chronologically by date of birth, with their works listed chronologically following a brief biography. This volume and its companion comprise the first modern catalog of the Corcoran collection. (When the Corcoran Gallery of Art closed in 2014 the National Gallery of Art accessioned much of its collection and became custodian of its publications. This and other out-of-print Corcoran volumes have been made freely available as PDFs in an effort to perpetuate the legacy of that institution.)
