The John Marin Collection

The Colby College Museum of Art is fortunate enough to have a collection of renowned artist John Marin's best work. The collection, one of the most comprehensive and renowned in the country, is the brain child of John Marin Jr. and Norma B. Marin, who were determined to give a retrospective collection of Marin's work to an academic museum in Maine, the state he so loved. Now you can enjoy the works, from etchings to oil to watercolor, in a beautiful book from Colby College, The John Marin Collection at the Colby College Museum of Art.

The Lunder Collection: A Gift of Art to Colby College features more than 270 highlights from the Lunder Collection, which is widely recognized as one of the most important collections of American art ever assembled by private hands.

Conceived as the companion to the 2009 publication Art at Colby, the lavishly illustrated book is divided into seven sections. Their titles demonstrate the range and depth of works included: Lunder-Colville Chinese Art Collection, Art through the American Centennial, James McNeill Whistler, Art of the Gilded Age, Art of the American West, American Modernism, and Art after 1945. Befitting the breadth of the Lunder Collection, the twenty-four authors of the essays and reflections have been drawn from the many facets of the art world: curators, museum directors, teachers, and dealers, all specialists in their fields, who bring to their writing deep knowledge of the artworks and sometimes of the Lunders themselves.

The Lunder Collection: A Gift of Art to Colby College accompanies the inaugural exhibition of the Lunder Collection, marking the opening of the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion at the Colby College Museum of Art. Hardcover
$50.00
