Esprit De Corps: The Art of the Parisian Avant-Garde and the First World War, 1914-1925.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Silver, Kenneth E.

Publisher Information:
Princeton University Press,, Princeton: 1989.

a Fine tight copy in Fine illustrated paperback binding. This title is uncommon today. In analyzing the changes in modern art between the outbreak of World War I and the Paris Exposition des Arts Dcoratifs of 1925, Kenneth Silver shows that the Parisian avant-garde was deeply involved in French society and its dominant values and relationships. He radically reinterprets masterpieces of modern art, from Matisse and Picasso to Lger and Le Corbusier, demonstrating how their creators all refer, consciously or not, to the Great War and its aftermath.
