Chilvers fails to include the infamous Guerilla Girls, and he misstates the relationship between the National Gallery and the Smithsonian. Nancy Frazier's The Penguin Concise Dictionary of Art History (Penguin, 2001), with its interdisciplinary approach, quotes from each artist, and more inclusive scope, offers an alternative, although with fewer entries. The Thames and Hudson Dictionary of Art and Artists (Thames and Hudson, 1994), though shorter and less recent, includes 426 black-and-white illustrations and ventures more into non-Western cultures.

Jackson visited virtually every region of Canada, including the Arctic, and responded particularly to the hilly region of rural Quebec along the St Lawrence River. From 1921 he returned there almost every spring, and the canvases he prepared from sketches made there are probably his finest work.

Based on the acclaimed Oxford Dictionary of Art, this is an authoritative and up-to-date guide to Western art--from ancient Greece to the present day. For this third edition, new entries have been added on younger, contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst, Julian Schnabel, and Rachel Whiteread, and the existing entries have been thoroughly revised and updated. With over 2,500 entries, arranged in A-Z order for ease of reference, this is an ideal book for students and for anyone who enjoys visiting art galleries and exhibitions. There are entries on artists, painting, sculpture, the graphic arts, leading collectors, dealers, and patrons, museums and galleries, and materials and techniques, many enlivened by quotations from artists and critics. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art and Artists is an engaging and reliable companion for anyone with an interest in the history of art--from Giotto to Gilbert & George.

Sudert
For a long time now,"The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art and Artists" has been my guide and reference in relation to art and it's world. This reliable and comprehensive guide is a good source for information on artists, major works of art, schools in relation to the art scene, and the various movements and genres throughout it's history. One can come across well-written entries on "The Dying Gaul", Michelangelo, Impressionism, Bauhaus, and many others. The writing focuses primarily on the subject and his / her / it's influence, with a touch of the right amount of personal information to give it a considerably well-rounded, professional whole.

Vast and informative, this classic reference guide is one of the best in the field. I look forward to purchasing the latest edition. - This is a review of the 1990 edition
