This is the first in a series of three chronological volumes tracing the groundbreaking innovations and achievements in the medium of drawing over the last 125 years through MoMA's unparalleled holdings. Examining masterworks from the Museum's collection of more than 7,000 works on paper beginning in the 1880s and continuing through today, these books reconsider artists' repudiation of traditional drafting methods, their assault on the use of the single sheet of paper, and the introduction of new materials. The three volumes showcase new formal strategies—including collage, abstraction, chance, and the integration of text and image—and new subject matter, including the urban experience, the body, and identity. 
 
This first volume spans the period from 1880 to 1945, and includes work by Jean Arp, Hans Bellmer, Paul Cèzanne, Salvador Dalí­, Arshile Gorky, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Odilon Redon, and Kurt Schwitters. 224 pp.; 175 illus.
