From the thousands of works of art of many kinds which the Museum of Modern Art has amassed since it was founded, over 350 best or most characteristic have been selected for reproduction in color and black and white in this volume, issued by the Museum to commemorate its twenty-fifth anniversary. The editor, Alfred H. Barr, Jr., states in his introduction that the illustrations are intended primarily to give pleasure, but this is no mere picture book. While it plates delight the eye, its lucid and evocative texts lead fresh understanding of the major masters and movements in the visual arts of the past seventy-five years. 240 pp.; 356 illus. Published in 1956, 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. MoMA’s award-winning publications program has been an integral part of the Museum’s mission since its founding in 1929. These exhibition- and collection-related titles are renowned for their high production values.
