Abstract:

The Art Institute's holdings of twentieth-century painting and sculpture is one of the most important in the world. Now, for the first time, this outstanding collection is surveyed in this stunning, full-color volume celebrating a century of innovation and creativity. Included are over one hundred and forty masterpieces by the most celebrated American and European artists of the period, spanning such diverse movements as Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Minimalism. World-renowned highlights of the collection include Brancusi's lyrical sculpture Golden Bird, Hopper's poignant Nighthawks, Matisse's monumental Bathers by a River, Picasso's masterful Old Guitarist, Wood's iconic American Gothic, as well as important works by Cornell, Hockney, Lawrence, O'Keeffe, Moore, Pollock, Sherman, Stella, and Warhol.

In addition to an introduction on the history of the collection, this handsome volume offers a comprehensive overview of twentieth-century painting and sculpture. All of the featured works are accompanied by brief, informative entries written for the general reader by Margherita Andreotti, Courtney Donnell, Audrey Fosse, Madeleine Grynsztejn, and Daniel Schulman of The Art Institute of Chicago; Sue Taylor of the University of Chicago; and Dennis Nawrocki of the College of Art and Design in Detroit.
