Verve: The Ultimate Review of Art and Literature (1937-1960).
by [Modern Art] Anthonioz, Michel.

Publisher Information:
Abrams, New York: 1988.

A Very Good tight copy with a dampstain to one corner of the rear board in a Fine bright dust jacket. Verve was launched in Paris in 1937 by a Greek ex-law student known simply as Teriade. Author Michel Anthonioz, a director of the National Audiovisual Institute of Paris, examines Teriade's pre- Verve collaboration with art publisher Albert Skira, then follows the financially troubled magazine's history through its demise in 1960. Teriade reveled in theme issues: the human figure, war, the Orient, Chagall's illustrated Bible. In so doing, he forced modernism and classical equilibrium into dynamic collisions. Alongside art by Braque, Picasso, Bonnard, Matisse, Kandinsky, Miro, Giacometti, Leger and Masson, we find medieval manuscript illuminations, old Japanese photos, essays by Gide, Camus, Malraux, Henri Michaux, James Joyce, Pierre Reverdy. Contains 685 illustrations, 100 plates in full color.
