About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Rubin, William

From Library Journal:

In this revealing catalog of the recent Museum of Modern Art exhibition with the same title, cubism is for the first time examined as a living dialog built on Cezanne between the innovative Georges Braque and the virtuoso Pablo Picasso. Paintings for this unique showing were amassed from both public and private collections and are reproduced here in a visual feast of 321 color and 230 black-and-white illustrations. Soundly researched and fully footnoted, the catalog includes an introduction by William Rubin, director emeritus of the Department of Painting and Sculpture at MOMA and a chronology by Judith Cousins and Pierre Daix. A second volume of cubist scholarship presenting "the results of a seminar held after its participants have been able to see this exhibition" is expected in about a year. This catalog belongs in all modern art book collections.

Store Description

I focus on intrinsically interesting, important, or unusual books in all fields. Specialties include popular culture; esoterica; modern & contemporary literature; John Steinbeck; The Beat & NY schools; poetry & small press; the avant-garde; little magazines & lit. journals (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); manuscripts & archives; literary ephemera; Americana; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books of all kinds. A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure. I am always looking to purchase fine books in any of my areas of interest, from single titles to collections. Please inquire. Search and want services are available, as are appraisals and collection development. For three years I maintained an open shop in Monterey, CA (formerly the Cannery Row Old Book Co.). I now work in the Washington DC area and maintain office space in downtown Silver Spring MD. I am open by chance or appointment. I also exhibit regularly at book fairs around the country. Please check my website for upcoming events. To date, I've issued five catalogues of rare books. Copies may be downloaded on my website (briancassidy.net). Print copies may also be requested. Please email to be added to our mailing list.
