From the depths of the Great Depression in 1929, John D. Rockefeller Jr. envisioned an unprecedented, modern, and luxurious building project. Given the theme "New Frontiers," nearly forty artists created everything from paintings and sculpture to fabrics and fountains. Rockefeller Center would be greater than its parts, nothing less than the heart of New York.

Today Rockefeller Center has millions of visitors, but no hands-on guidebook to help tourists easily locate and enjoy its art—until now. Each chapter covers a single building; one general map and detailed section maps make self-guided tours easy. Essential information is provided for every piece, along with color photographs of most. Biographical information and a list of artists allow visitors to single out a specific artist's work.

By the author of the acclaimed The Art of Rockefeller Center, this unique and affordable guidebook will empower tourists, students, and enthusiasts alike to discover Rockefeller's extraordinary vision.
Thomas Hoving, former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, also served as editor of Connoisseur and cultural correspondent for ABC's "20/20." The author of fifteen books, including the bestsellers Making the Mummies Dance and Tutankhamun, he lives in New York City.
