by [Art Between the Wars] Silver, Kenneth E.
Princeton University Press,
A Fine tight unread copy in a Near Fine bright dust jacket with a slight crease to one corner of the front flap. Kenneth Silver has written about a crucial episode in the story of modern art, the period from the outbreak of World War I to the Paris Exposition des Arts Decoratifs in 1925. Silver has reinterpreted masterpieces of modern art, from Matisse and Picasso to Leger and Le Corbusier, showing how their creators all refer --consciously or not--to the cataclysm of the Great War and its aftermath. Complete with 114 illustrations. This title is uncommon today in the hardcover edition.
