The 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art (or Armory Show) marked a turning point in the history of American art and culture. Organized by a small group of American artists and presented in the huge space of the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City, this ambitious exhibition of 1,400 works was the moment when the American public was introduced to European avant-garde art. This outstanding interdisciplinary volume re-examines the exhibition and its historical and cultural context.
Museum and gallery exhibition catalogs can provide comprehensive information about individual artists or explore specific works, themes, historical periods and geographical locations.
Published in conjunction with the exhibition Gauguin: Metamorphoses at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume explores the remarkable relationship between Paul Gauguin's rare and extraordinary prints and transfer drawings, and his better-known paintings and sculptures in wood and ceramic.
Of all the paintings by the Impressionist master Edouard Manet, nearly one-fifth are still lifes, a genre the artist himself considered "the touchstone of painting". This sumptuous volume, published to accompany a landmark exhibition at the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore and at the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, is the first major book to focus on this crucial aspect of Manet's work.
