Authors Catherine Coleman Brawer and Kathleen Murphy Skolnik have produced the definitive book on Meière and the depth of their archival research is evident. They provide a wealth of scholarly documentation of her career, creative processes, and working methods with corresponding notes, index, and an appendix with a chronological list of commissions. The book is lavishly illustrated with documentary photographs and luscious new photography of Meière’s work provided by Meière’s granddaughter Hildreth Meière Dunn. In addition, Richard Guy Wilson, the renowned architectural historian from University of Virginia has contributed the foreword.
The title is essential for decorative arts or art and architectural libraries and appropriate for any comprehensive art reference collection or general library. (Lee Viverette, Director of Library, Special Collections and Publications, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Arlis/ Na Reviews, June 2014)
