Reviews - What do customers think about Masterworks From The Museum Of Modern Art?

A Celebration: MOMA's 75th Birthday  Nov 5, 2005
'MASTERWORKS OF MODERN ART From the Museum of Modern Art' is an apt, richly illustrated, thoughtfully 'curated' book that traces the beginnings of modern art from the fascinating 1880s through the museum's inception in 1930 through the changes both physically and collection-wise in the past seventy-five years. As complied and curated by MoMA director Glenn Lowry, this 'birthday catalogue' is an exceptional guide through the ideas in painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and installation through the period we call 'modern'.

Not only is the collection surveyed, but also the original building and the new architectural reincarnation by Yoshio Taniguchi of a space that renders each of the works a special aura is highlighted. Here are great works by van Gogh, Leger, Warhol, Brancusi, Klee, Duchamp, Kahlo, Lange, Arbus to name only a few. The color reproductions are excellent - as clear and color perfect as you'll find in any art book.

Lowry's own comments add not only to the appreciation of the individual works represented in this fine book, but also to the concept of 'what is modern?' that spurs so many debates. A glorious way to celebrate a worthy milestone! Grady Harp, November 05
