The Romance of Modernism

Paintings and Sculpture from the Scott M. Black Collection

Essay by George T.M. Shackelford.

Recently named one of the world's top 200 collectors by ARTnews, Scott M. Black has developed an exceptional collection of Impressionist, Postimpressionist and Modernist works over the past two decades. Ranging from sculptures by Rodin, Maillol and Moore to paintings by (among others) Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Leger, Picasso, Braque, Vuillard, Signac, De Chirico, Miro and Magritte and works on paper by Chagall, Pissarro and Degas, this is indeed one of the world's most notable private holdings. But more than simply an amalgam of remarkable artworks, the Black Collection--published here for the first time as an ensemble--bespeaks a personal engagement with each object, a sense of wonder that infuses this gathering with a spirit of adventure, delight and romance. Includes historical commentary by George T. M. Shackelford, author of Impressions of Light and Gauguin Tahiti. Taken together, these 60 objects present a compelling, instructive and disarmingly personal panorama of the period from 1870 to 1970 when art revolutionized our ways of seeing.
