Promised to the Colby College Museum of Art in 2007, the Lunder Collection comprises more than 500 works of art, including paintings, sculptures, prints and photographs, and is widely recognized as one of the most important collections of American art ever assembled by private collectors. The Lunder Collection: A Gift of Art to Colby College is a richly illustrated volume featuring more than 270 collection highlights. Conceived as the companion to the 2009 publication Art at Colby, the catalogue includes seven essays on the collection’s major areas: ancient Chinese art; art through the American Centennial; the art of James McNeill Whistler; art of the Gilded Age; art of the American West; American Modernism and contemporary art; as well as 17 reflections on specific works or groups of work in the collection.
