The Museum of Modern Art in NewYork, founded in 1929, has helped to bring the history of modern art to vivid life through its unparalleled collection of late-19th and 20th-century painting and sculpture. A veritable who's who of modern art is represented in the Museum's collection: Paul Cezanne,Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Max Beckmann, Oskar Schlemmer, Constantin Brancusi, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist, AndyWarhol, Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, to name but a few. This volume offers a comprehensive overview of the Museum's painting and sculpture collection through more than 300 colour illustrations and texts drawn from the Museum's archives and publications. These lively, diverse, and often surprising interpretations of a work of art, sometimes from the artist themselves, both enrich and expand the literature on the history of modern art. Accompanying these texts is an introduction by John Elderfield, Chief Curator Emeritus at the Museum, which offers a personal account of the collection's history and its installations.
