Avant-garde : experimental cinema of the 1920s and '30s by Bret Wood( Visual )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century
Picasso, Braque, Léger, and the Cubist spirit, 1919-1939 by Kenneth Wayne( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents art and design in France during the years between the two World Wars, in an effort to dispel the perception that Cubism was only a pre-World War I phenomenon. After the war, Cubist painting became more varied, colorful, and accessible, and began to affect other media such as furniture, fashion, cinema and architecture. What had begun as a rarefied pictorial style became a popular language. The first essay addresses Picasso's abundant and varied cubist painting. The second essay treats the art of three major Cubists -- Picasso, Braque, and Leger -- in the context of the various cubist idioms that developed. The third essay, also broad in scope, examines the significant relationship between Cubism and the decorative arts in France
