New in fine dust jacket. 239 p. illus. (part mounted col. ) 29 cm. Includes 356Illustrations. From the thousands of works of art of many kinds which the Museum of Modern Art has amassed since it was founded, over 350 of the best or most characteristic have been selected for reproduction in color and black and white in this volume, issued by the Museum to commemorate its twenty-fifth anniversary. The editor, Alfred H. Barr, Jr., states in his introduction that the illustrations are intended primarily to give pleasure. But this is no mere picture book. While its plates delight the eye, its lucid and evocative text leads to fresh understanding of the major masters and movements in the visual arts of the past seventy five years.
