    The American Wing is a favorite destination for the Metropolitan's visitors, so I am particularly pleased that, once again, there is in print a handy and dependable guide to its treasures.

    Nineteenth-Century America: Paintings and Sculpture

    Howat, John K., and Natalie Spassky, with an introduction by John K. Howat and John Wilmerding (1970)

The exhibition Nineteenth-Century America, a superb suite of formal galleries of paintings and sculpture, p...
