A selection of 142 innovative works by leading artists of the period includes Picasso's Old Guitarist, Brancusi's Golden Bird, Matisse's Bathers by a River, and Hopper's Nighthawks. The publication opens with an introduction to the history of the collection, followed by lively entries on all of the featured works.
