Booknews
Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name organized by The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. Essays are organized around the theme of Paris, seen through the eyes first of the four young American artists, then the Parisian critics and journalists who commented on their efforts, and finally a contemporary American writer reflecting on the importance of Paris for the 20th-century imagination. The plates unfold a decade of work in an arrangement that shows how the art and aesthetics of the four artists embraced new aspects of time, space, and movement. 10.5x12.5" Annotation c.
