Since 1964, beginning with a reproduction of Jan van Eycke's St Jerome in His Study, the front cover of JAMA:The Journal of the American Medical Association has featured full-color images of renowned works of fine art as well as many lesser-known gems. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, and hundreds of other artists have graced the covers of this eminent medical journal. For the past four decades, these images have been selected by JAMA senior contributing editor Dr. M. Therese Southgate, who writes marvelous accompanying essays exploring the background of the artist and the circumstances under which the work was completed, followed by astute commentary on the work itself. These engaging articles have been regularly rated as one of the top-read sections in JAMA by readers throughout the world. In this third volume of The Art of JAMA, Dr. Southgate brings together a new selection of 100 wonderful covers. Each painting is displayed in a two-page spread, with Dr. Southgate's essay on the work on the facing page. The volume includes works by Marc Chagall, Leonardo da Vinci, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, Frida Kahlo, Rene Magritte, Edouard Manet, Edvard Munch, Georgia O'Keeffe, Rembrandt van Rijn, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh, and many more. And, of course, Dr. Southgate also includes less famous artists, treating readers to the pleasure of unexpected discovery. Lavishly illustrated, exquisitely designed, and printed on high-quality paper, The Art of JAMA is a beautiful book that will be a perfect graduation present from medical school and an excellent gift for physicians, other health care professionals, art historians, and anyone interested in art and medicine.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"These covers are wonderful. All health professionals should take the time to peruse them and carefully study each wonderful painting like physicians carefully study their patients, for there is a similarity. The painter observes and so does the physician. The fine arts and the medical arts mesh perfectly." -- Doody's
