Meant to Be Shared: The Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints

By Suzanne Boorsch, Douglas Cushing, Pamela Franks, Alexa A Greist, Elisabeth Hodermarsky, Sinclaire Marber, John Moore, John Moore, Heather Nolin, Syracuse University, Syracuse University
This important volume offers the first comprehensive look at the Arthur Ross Collection--more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, French, and Spanish prints--and is published to mark the inaugural exhibition of the collection in its new home at the Yale University Art Gallery. Highlights include superb etchings by Canaletto and Tiepolo; the four volumes of Piranesi's Antiquities of Rome, as well as his famous Vedute (Views) and Carceri (Prisons); Goya's Tauromaquia in its first edition of 1816; an extremely rare etching by Edgar Degas; and numerous other 19th-century French prints, by Eugène Delacroix, Honoré Daumier, Édouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, and others. The accompanying essays discuss the life of Arthur Ross, a significant philanthropist who funded several arts institutions; the formation of the collection and the art-historical significance of the works; and several thematic approaches to studying the collection, reinforcing its legacy as an important teaching resource.
