Modern Art in Britain 1910-1914by Anna Gruetzner Robins, Barbican Art Gallery (Other)
Anna Robins looks in detail at the series of exhibitions of European modern art held in Britain between 1910 and 1919 which introduced Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky, and many other artists to England. A large number of the paintings and sculptures selected for these exhibitions have been identified for the first time and are illustrated in this book together with many examples of work by British artists, conveying the enormous impact that modernism had on artistic life and practice in Britain in the first part of this century.
British artists illustrated and discussed include Gore, Grant, Fry, Bell, Sickert, John, Lewis, Bomberg, and Saunders. The book also contains a full chronology and a complete list of modern art exhibitions.
