Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rubin organized this gathering of 27 scholars, sponsored by MOMA in conjunction with its historic 1989 exhibition, ``Picasso and Braque: Pioneering Cubism,'' significant because many of the works exhibited were juxtaposed for the first time. While considering this unique view of the Picasso/Braque relationship and the evolution of cubism, the symposium produced a remarkable addition both to the literature of 20th-century art history/criticism and to our understanding of the ``invisible college'' of professional/intellectual interplay. Though seven papers were delivered, the major content of this book is the well-edited transcripts of extended discussions that afford an immediacy of insight into the theories and themes, concerns and conflicts of those present. Pierre Daix, in the exchange after Reff's paper on ``The Reaction Against Fauvism,'' cautions the art historian to be wary: ``there are two kinds of events--the ones that actually happened, and the ones we reconstruct.'' This impressive volume is an example of the former, slightly shaped but essentially unchanged by the latter. Essential for every library that owns the exhibition catalog. Highly recommended.-- Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art Lib., New York
