What's New

November 2008 Update

This month, we continue to enhance Grove coverage of decorative arts with new and revised content. The more than 500 new articles in this update feature prominent artists, such as Robert Chamberlain, 18th century English enameller and porcelain manufacturer, and American industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss, in addition to entries on pieces and techniques, such as hooked rug, crackle, Amberina glass, and Denby Pottery. Complementing these articles are more than 300 updated decorative arts bibliographies, expanded to include the latest scholarship in this burgeoning field of interest.

We are also delighted to enhance our decorative arts content with 185 new images throughout the site. While these images are accessible via search and browse, here is a list of some of the more notable additions:

Finally, this update also sees the inclusion of five additional comprehensive learning units from MoMA. Each learning unit contains an introduction along with five to six lesson plans all focused on a given topic, ranging from photography (19th century to the present day), to the work of Louis I. Kahn, to the development and evolution of modern art during the mid 20th century. We hope that you will enjoy these additions and the continued expansion of learning resources and teaching tools within Grove.
