By Carolyn Lanchner
Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Joan MirÃ³, and Andy Warhol each significantly shaped the development of art in the twentieth century. These modern masters are the subjects of four small books, the first in a series featuring favorite artists and significant works in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Each book presents a single artist and guides readers through a selection of his most memorable achievements. A short and lively essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art and in the artist's own life. These books are excellent resources for anyone interested in the stories behind the masterpieces of the modern canon.
