    I visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art when the show, American Modernism, 1910 to 1950 was running I enjoyed the show very much Jessica Todd Smith and her supporting crew did an outstanding job of putting together an interesting show on an important topic.When I attend these special shows, I often buy the accompanying book, which the PMOA often publishes as a go with.This book is titled, Highlights from In other words, not everything that was in the show is included in this volume It is a very nice accompaniment to the show and I am happy to own it However, there were some really interesting things in the show that I wish had been included in this book I would have very much like to have seen the two formal dresses that were in the show They were striking and spoke very succinctly to the theme of American Modernism Additionally, the show included informative captions for the displayed artworks These sub captions are not included along with the artworks in the book The book would be educational if these sub captions had been included But otherwise, the book does a good job of covering the basic structure of the show And it is a good general reference volume that I am happy to add to my modest library on art.
