Italian modernist painter Mario Sironi's (1885-1961) paintings spoke through a unique palette of incessantly dialectical lights and shadows, blacks and whites, browns and ochres. Reproduced here is a selection of works that, with the exception of his futurist period, span his entire career: the urban landscapes of the 20s, compositions of the 30s, and explosions of elaborate multiple works of the 40s and 50s.
Edited by Claudia Gian Ferrari and Ada Masoero. Introduction by Giorgio Pellegrini.

A nice book about a special artist when there are very few monograms available about him and his art. Unfortunately for art lovers, Sironi was largely ignore by the art world for several decades because of his affilation with the facists of Italy. Today there has been a renew interests in his work along with other 20th century Italian artists and this book will be a good start for those interested in an alternative to the french and Picasso imitators.
Review of Sironi: Opere/Works 1919-1959 Oct 8, 2006
Overall a decent book, has a wide range of Sironi's works. Although it has a good cross section, the colors in the reproductions are lackluster, compared to other books featuring Sironi's works. Because it has so many color illustrations, it's a good addition to your library if you really like Sironi, but don't pay too much for it :).
