Review quote

"This will be an invaluable reference tool for high school and college students, scholars, researchers, and general readers. Most highly recommended." --Library Journal, Starred Review "Especially notable is the extensive treatment of artists and artwork not previously considered 'in the mainstream, ' both in entries for individual artists and in overviews such as African American art and Native North American art (which is almost 100 pages long). Articles and bibliographies in the GEAA are uniformly excellent...highly recommended for its quality and new material."--Booklist, starred reviewshow more
