Among the other contributing artists to whom New England can lay claim are Shelby Lee Adams, Andrea Frank, David Hilliard, and Robert Lyons from Massachusetts; Julee Holcombe from New Hampshire; Anne Hall of Rhode Island; and Andrea Modica of Vermont. Paul D’Amato now lives and works in Chicago, but he taught for many years at Maine College of Art. And Lalla Essaydi, who is represented by a quartet of her signature portraits of Muslim girls covered in calligraphy, is now in New York, but she graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and first emerged in Boston.

Presumed Innocence is accompanied and documented by a very fine 160-page, full-color catalogue ($39.95) with essays by curator Rachel Rosenfield Lafo and Barnard College art history professor Anne Higonnet. The catalogue features full-page reproductions of every work in the show but one, that being a small Cartier-Bresson photo the museum could not reproduce owing to copyright restrictions. The show is perfect; the catalogue almost so.

DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, 51 Sandy Point Road, Lincoln, MA. 781-259-8355, decordova.org
