Here is a book that will bring enlightenment and understanding to all those who wish to enjoy recent developments in creative painting. The author describes certain vital art movements of the twentieth century, casts new light on a number of established masters and appraises brilliantly the work of many strongly individual young and lesser-known painters, American and English. Among the artists whose work is examined are Rouault, Soutine, Beckmann, Boccioni, Severini, de Chirico, Carrà, Mattam Weber, Hoppeer, Shahn, Graves, Blume, MacIver, Levine, Bloom, Motherwell and Baziotes. The last section of the book is devoted to modern English painters including Wyndham Lewis, Spencer, Sutherland, Nicholson, Piper, Tunnard, Burra, Colquhoun, Bacon and MacBryde. 152 pp.; 65 illus. Published in 1948 and edited by James Thrall Soby, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse.
