This book highlights the work of twelve masters of 20th-century art: Constantin Brancusi, Alexander Calder, Giorgio de Chirico, Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock and AndyWarhol. By breaking with tradition, inventing new techniques, and changing the terms of arts display, each of these artists played an integral role in shaping the course of modern art. Organized into monographic sections that provide a lively introduction to each artist and his practice, Picasso toWarhol allows readers to immerse themselves in the achievements of these great figures and to look closely at many of the centurys most significant artworks including Matisses Dance (I), Picassos Girl Before a Mirror, Légers ThreeWomen, and Johnss Map. This richly illustrated volume also features an essay by Jodi Hauptman, Curator, The Museum of Modern Art, that explores the influences and interactions between these artists, close readings of works by each of the twelve artists, and short biographical sketches.
