There is a special attraction about small museums that house great collections formed over a lifetime by single-minded art lovers. Of these none is as intriguing as the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute.² Souren Melikian, International Herald Tribune Surrounded by 140 acres of expansive lawns, meadows, and walking trails in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is home to exceptional collections of European and American painting and sculpture, master prints and drawings, English silver and porcelain, and early photographs. It is also recognized as a leading international center for research and higher education. This handsome book combines beautiful images with engaging narrative to capture the unique experience of "art in nature" that has made the Clark one of the country's best-loved museums.
