Decorative Arts and Design: The Collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts The second volume of the ambitious “marathon” to publish works on the Museum’s collections, this time on the collection of Decorative Arts and Design, was completed with an original summary listing the works by the material they were made from. As a first for the Museum, it was launched at the Salon du Livre de Montréal and soon distributed internationally, like the first volume on the collections of Quebec and Canadian Art published last year, which is, for example, available in the Louvre bookstore. This superb, original and scholarly work, produced by our Publishing Department with support from Archives, with layout by the Montreal design firm orangetango, was placed under the general editorship of Rosalind Pepall and Diane Charbonneau.
We were delighted to win a prize in the “Outstanding Permanent Collection Catalogue” category from the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) for this book, which was also selected as one of Quebec’s 100 best graphic projects by Grafika.
