From Library Journal
"This handsome volume," said LJ's reviewer (4/1/52) presents "those pronouncements in art and literature which should have meaning still . . . ." Originally published in 1951, this is a paperback reprint of the second edition (1981) of one of the first books written in English dealing with Dada; it's still one of the best.-- MRCopyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review
T. J. Clark : The single most instructive book on Dada...[T]he items collected are readable, pungent, and representative. It is one of those "essential works" on twentieth-century art.

Art of Tomorrow: Hilla Von Rebay and Solomon R. Guggenheim
Vivian E. Barnett
0892073276
July 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
A talented artist who studied in Munich, Berlin, and Paris, Hilla Rebay embraced the idea of non-representational art as both a style and an aesthetic philosophy. At age 22 she began to exhibit and was introduced to the influential and avant-garde gallery Der Sturm in Berlin, where she was drawn to modern giants such as Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee. When Rebay moved to America in 1927, she was commissioned by Solomon R. Guggenheim to paint his portrait, and from that point she began her mission to enlighten him with the art she so fervently supported. Rebay introduced Guggenheim to artists such as Kandinsky, and in 1937, he established the Solomon R. Guggenheim foundation for the magnificent collection he had purchased, based on Rebay's advice. In 1939, he and Rebay started the Museum of Non-objective...


Avant-Garde Graphics, 1918-1934
Lutz Becker (Editor)

February 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Avant-garde artists of the 1920s and 30s discovered a new role, that of designers for the printing industry--what is today known as graphic design. As illustrated by the numerous stunning, high quality, color reproductions in this book, designers stripped away printers' ornaments and drawn illustrations; they no longer created captions on the page; and they brought in abstract, geometrical forms, photographs, plain typefaces and simple lettering, white space, and asymmetrical layouts. Included are examples of posters, prints, book designs, and political and commercial ephemera. Avant-Garde Graphics focuses on the designs of many of the leading practitioners of the Modern movement working between 1918 and 1934--from the Dutch members of the De Stijl and the German Bauhaus to the Constructivists of the USSR and central...

Book Description
Charles Biederman (b. 1906) has been active in the avant-garde for three-quarters of a century. From his early experiments with cubism and surrealism to the brightly colored aluminum sculptures he constructed through the 1990s, he has pioneered art forms, styles, and theories. This book presents a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the career of this influential artist, and features full-color illustrations of dozens of Biederman's paintings, drawings, and signature three-dimensional aluminum constructions. A native Midwesterner, Biederman participated actively in the art communities of Chicago, New York, and Paris during the 1920s and 1930s, interacting with Joan Miró, Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Léger, Jean Arp, and Pablo Picasso. His expressionist figures evolved into works of geometric abstraction,...

Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Peggy Guggenheim was among the most intriguing cultural figures of her day?as intriguing as the vast collection of modern art she amassed over her lifetime. Her granddaughter pays her a fitting tribute in this lavishly illustrated volume with photos of family and friends, stunning reproductions of artworks (by Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, and others), and facsimiles from her famous guest books (including entries from such notables as Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, and Ned Rorem). The account of Guggenheim's life is absorbing, exploring her ties within the international art community, her personal life, the stories behind many of her acquisitions of modern abstract works, and her romance with the city of Venice. This is all presented with beauty, charm, and candor, providing an empathetic...


The Societe Anonyme: Modernism for America

·
 
Book Description
This beautifully illustrated book highlights the unique history of The Société Anonyme, Inc., an organization founded in 1920 by the artists Katherine S. Dreier (1877–1952), Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968), and Man Ray (1890–1976). As America’s first “experimental museum” for modern art, the Société Anonyme provided a means for artists, rather than historians, to chronicle the rise of modernism. Led by Dreier and Duchamp, the group eventually assembled a collection of more than one thousand artworks, which it presented to the public in a variety of innovative programs, publications, and exhibitions.
 
The incredible collection of the Société Anonyme now belongs to the Yale University Art Gallery, a gift from the Société and Dreier. It...
