Wise Extravagance: The Founding of the Carnegie International Exhibitions, 1895-1901
Kenneth Neal. In the 1890s, America was ripe for an annual internat. exhibition of contemporary art. Who would have expected it to be in Pittsburgh? But the city had Andrew Carnegie, & his interest in art. Neal looks at how the Carnegie Internat. came to be: the philosophy of those who founded it, the first exhibitions -- the art, the artists, & the public reception -- & what the early Internat. meant to the world of art & to the development of the Carnegie Museum. The Internat. neither made Pittsburgh a world-class art center nor transformed its inhabitants into moral & spiritual paragons. But it did greatly enrich the cultural life of the city & the country -- as it continues to do today -- & it helped improve Pittsburgh’s dreary, provincial, industrial image. Illustrations.
