From the many thousands of paintings, sculptures, and constructions in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 150 outstanding examples have been selected to indicate the quality and diversity of modern masters and movements from about 1885 to the early 1990s. A substantial revision of the original edition, published in 1973, this volume takes account of developments and Museum acquisitions in the last quarter of the 20th century. Painters range from late 19th- and early 20th-century pioneers of modernism such as Degas, Cazanne, van Gogh, and Seurat to late 20th-century artists who challenge the very premises of modernism itself. Sculptures vary from representations of the human figure by Rodin, Matisse, and Moore, to an abstraction by Arp, a bird by Brancusi, and a soft sculpture by Oldenburg. Among the constructions are works by Picasso, Calder, and David Smith. This handsome and highly readable guide to looking at modern art, is accompanied by commentaries on each work which frequently include quotations from the artists themselves and from the writing of distinguished critics.
