Gothic Sculpture in America III
The Museums of New York and Pennsylvania

By Joan A. Holladay and Susan L. Ward

Gothic Sculpture in America III

With 446 entries examining some 550 works of figural, architectural, and decorative sculpture in 27 museums and public institutions, this volume continues the Census of Gothic Sculpture in America started by Dorothy Gillerman in 1989.

In addition to such large and well-known collections as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Glencairn Museum, smaller collections and those not known for their medieval works, like the Barnes Foundation and the Explorers Club, are also inventoried.

Generously supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Getty Foundation, this book includes entries by 35 individual specialists.
