This booklet is a collection of writings by Hugh F. McKean (1908–95) about individual works of art he and his wife assembled for the Morse Museum. In the book's introduction, Dr. Laurence J. Ruggiero, Director of the Morse Museum, notes that through his labels, Hugh McKean attempted to capture the imagination of the Museum's visitor: "They sometimes accomplished this with wit and sometimes with wisdom: Some of the labels are truly poetic—none are boring."
