Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters
Edited by Jodi Hauptman. Text by Jodi Hauptman, Michael Rooks, Samantha Friedman.
Published in conjunction with a presentation of masterworks from The Museum of Modern Art, New York, at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, this volume highlights the work of 14 masters of twentieth-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, Romare Bearden, Louise Bourgeois and Andy Warhol. Organized into monographic sections that provide a lively introduction to each artist and his practice, Picasso to Warhol allows readers to explore the achievements of these great figures and to look closely at many of their most significant artworks including Matisse's “Dance (I),” Picasso's “Girl Before a Mirror,” Léger's “Three Women” and Johns' “Map.” An introduction by MoMA curator Jodi Hauptman explores the influences and interactions between these artists. The book also includes close readings of works by each of the 14 artists, and short biographical sketches.
