Introduction by Kirk Varnedoe. With contributions by Kirk Varnedoe, Magdalena Dabrowski, and Kadee Robbins
 
This selection of thirty-six paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints from the collection of Louise Reinhardt Smith attests to her astute eye for important works of art. This outstanding group includes such masterworks as Henri Matisse's dazzling Still Life with Aubergines, Vassily Kandinsky's sensational Picture with an Archer, and Picasso's witty The Glass of Absinthe—a bronze that joins ten of Mrs. Smith's distinguished Picassos here. These works, together with those by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Odilon Redon, Auguste Rodin, Georges Braque, André Derain, and Alberto Giacometti, chart some of the outstanding moments of modernism. Their presentation in this volume salute the taste and extraordinary generosity of Louise Reinhardt Smith, who has donated most of these masterworks to The Museum of Modern Art.
 
Each full-color illustration is accompanied by a commentary that eloquently illuminates the essential context of the art and provides new insights into the collection as a group. These discussions are supplemented with full catalogues notes, references, and an exhibition history. 96 pp.; 38 illus.
