325 Works From the Museum of Modern ArtBook - 1999
Founded in 1929, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, was the first museum devoted explicitly to the arts of the 20th century. This superbly produced handbook is the museum's own selection of the most significant artworks in its collection, which is widely acknowledged to be the finest and most comprehensive of its kind in the world.No other institution can approach the richness of The Museum of Modern Art's holdings in painting, sculpture, drawings, prints, illustrated books, architectural models and drawings, graphic and industrial design, photography, film, video, and multimedia installations. Interweaving some 320 highlights from the museum's six curatorial departments, this volume presents a sumptuous and broadly chronological overview that takes readers from Post-Impressionism to contemporary art. Every work executed in color is reproduced in color, and each is accompanied by a brief commentary.
