About this title


Book by Joachimides, Christos


If you weren't lucky enough to see this terrific collection of work in Berlin, the exhibition catalog is a surprisingly satisfying substitute. Marking the birth of modernism in 1907 with the creation of Picasso's Les Desmoiselles d'Avignon, the show includes work through the 1990s. While work from such late dates is not usually included in the historical category of modernism, this show illustrates that modernism is a continuum based on innovation and reaction. The back matter is full of useful artist and author bios, plus an index of artists' names. The plate sections are carefully placed between the 15 essays by world-renowned figures in art criticism, the reproductions are rich and crisp, and the generous kerning makes the substantial text easy to read. The Age of Modernism is itself work of art.
