Description

Edited by Emily Braun and Rebecca Rabinow 

This groundbreaking new history of Cubism, based on works from the most significant private collection in the world today, is written by many of the field's premier art historians and scholars. The collection, recently donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, includes 80 works by Picasso, Braque, Gris, and Léger and is unsurpassed in the number of masterpieces and iconic pieces deemed critical to the development of Cubism. 

Twenty-two essays explore various facets of Cubism from its origins and consider small groupings of works in light of specific themes—such as a study by neuropsychiatrist Eric Kandel on Cubism and the science of perception. Also included is a fascinating interview in which Lauder discusses his approach to collecting. This is a work to place beside other great histories of Modernism. It is a comprehensive, copiously illustrated book that offers a greater understanding of Cubism and will stand as a resource on this pioneering style for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My artist husband loved this! I bought this as a gift for my husband, a real estate broker who took up sculpting late in life. He loves modern art and in particular the Cubists, including of course, Picasso, the maestro. And he loves this book! As an editor, I can appreciate that it is beautifully published with lovely illustrations. So it gets an A-plus in this household!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Splendid presentation of a world-class collection The Lauder Collection was a stunning acquisition of the Met; the book is of similar quality. Probably the best single volume introduction to Cubism available today. And, at a bargain price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cubism: The Leonard A. Lauder Collection Enjoyed the exhibit, but didn't buy the book at the time, so took advantage of the member discount when shopping for Christmas presents. This is an informative guide to the movement which gave me a new appreciation for Cubism.
