Joaquín Torres-García: The Arcadian Modern
Description
Edited by Luis Pérez-Oramas. Essays by Alexander Alberro, Sergio Chejfec, Estrella de Diego, and Geaninne Gutiérrez-Guimarães.

Joaquín Torres-García is one of the most complex and emblematic modern masters of the first half of the twentieth century, whose work opened up transformational paths for modern art on both sides of the Atlantic. Drawn to both the avant-garde and the primitive, the schematic and the utopian, he participated in some of the most crucial intellectual and artistic discussions of the past century. His close involvement with several early modern and avant-garde movements, including Catalan Noucentisme, Cubism, Ultraism, Vibrationism, and Neo-Plasticism, make him an unparalleled figure in the history of modernism in the Americas.

Published in conjunction with the first major, all-inclusive retrospective of the artist's work in the United States since the 1970s, this richly illustrated publication presents Torres-García's long and wide-ranging career, and includes drawings, paintings, objects, sculptures, and rare manuscripts. The book is structured as a series of chapters interspersed with plates that encompass the artist's entire oeuvre, followed by an illustrated chronology and an extensive bibliography.
