There is a moderate amount of wear to the edges, with rubbing to the covers and vertical creasing and surface paper losses to the spine. The previous owner's bookplate remains affixed to the inside front cover. Still, the binding is tight and solid, with an otherwise clean interior free of other markings. Handsomely produced, with text and chronologies printed on brown paper pages and illustrations of paintings printed in color on stark white. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition held in Paris from January 21-April 19, 1982.
