About this title:

Synopsis: In French. Suggestive of an old-fashioned cabinet of curiosities, this miscellany of 375 paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, books, maps, scientific instruments, astronaut gear, and natural objects (fossils, seashells, and meteorites) are solemnly assembled to explore how science's viscous frontiers have been interpreted by artists in the last two centuries. The ambitious catalog, which accompanies a millennium exhibition in Montreal and Barcelona, is divided into six sprawling sectionsAall of which might have worked better as more focused separate shows. Combining American manifest destiny with Polar exploration, moonscapes, current interstellar constructs, and imaginary cosmologies will tax even the most science-steeped reader. Works are described in detail, and artists receive short biographies and bibliographies. Overall, an impressive, if audacious and intimidating, tour de force. For large public and academic libraries.ARussell T. Clement, Univ. of Tennessee Lib., Knoxville
