About this Item

A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. 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. From the Library Journal.
