Painters in Paris, 1895-1950by William S. Lieberman
A Metropolitan Museum of Art Publication In the first half of the 20th century, Paris was the undisputed center of the art world, and artists from East and West were drawn to the city. Today, at museums around the globe, paintings by Picasso, Braque, Léger, Modigliani, Chagall, Matisse, and other artists working in Paris at the time are among the most popular attractions. This book showcases the remarkable collection of these works at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Individual commentaries written by William S. Lieberman, an eminent authority, accompany some of the full-color plates. Published to coincide with a major exhibition opening at the Metropolitan in the spring of 2000, this lavish volume is sure to please any art lover. 130 illustrations in full color, 10 3/4 x 8 5/8"
