Some 25 years ago in Chicago the late Samuel A. Marx and his wife Florene began to form what was to become, as James Thrall Soby states, "a collection of such authority that it would be difficult to think of its rival among private collections of modern art." They pioneered in being the first to dare bring into their home paintings that to most collectors at the time would have seemed too big, too aggressive, and too strong to live with- Matisses of the heroic period of 1911 to 1916 culminating in the Moroccans, Léger's Women with Cat, an extradentary range of Picassos demonstrating many aspects of the protean master's style. Other works are smaller in scale or more serene in mood, yet all show the collectors' aim to buy and cherish truly exalted works by artists of international repute. 56 pp.; 45 illus. Published in 1965, with texts by Alfred H. Barr, Jr, James Thrall Soby and Lucy R. Lippard, 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.
