    1. This book not only discusses, but illustrates, the collection of American Minatures at the Metropolitan Museum. Because they are so fragile, the Met shows only a few at a time, making this book a wonderful resource. Many of the pieces are illustrated in color, often with the settings included. Mini-bios of the artists as well as some notes on the sitters. The majority of the paintings are accomplished and clearly communitcate the sitter's personality as well as their features.
