Cubism and twentieth-century art
This reissue brings back into print a timeless classic on one of the most important movements in Modern art. Art historian Robert Rosenblum brilliantly clarifies the language of Cubism and offers a penetrating analysis of its role in the creation of the major pictorial and sculptural styles of our time. The colorplates include both well-known Cubist masterpieces and works marking the transition to other viewpoints in contemporary art.
