BOOK NOTES The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860–1989. Edited by Alexan- dra Munroe. New York: Guggenheim Museum; distributed by D.A.P. / Distributed Art Publishers, 2009. Pp. 439. isbn 978-0892073832. The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860–1989 is a volume of prints and essays published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at the Solo- mon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City from January 30 to April 19, 2009. The exhibition organizer is also the editor/author of this volume, Alexandra Monroe. The book serves as the exhibition catalog, as well as offering a collection of essays about the catalog. There are three introductory essays by Alexandra Monroe, Richard King, and Harry Harootunian. Following these introductory essays are eight essays that are presented along with the items in the catalog to which they correspond. The extensive appendices, consisting of a general chronology, a list of exhibition artists, and a selected bibliography, are all compiled and edited by Ikuyo Nakagawa. The introductory essays by Munroe, King, and Harootunian each present the book in a different light. Munroe’s essay is quite good at problematizing the very idea of examining how American artists were influenced by Asia.
