Masterworks from the Louise Reinhardt Smith Collection

Masterworks from the Louise Reinhardt Smith Collection Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This selection of thirty-six paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints from the collection of Lousie Reinhardt Smith attests to her astute eye for important works of art. This outstanding group includes such masterworks as Henri Matisse's dazzling Still Life with Aubergines, Vasily Kandinsky's sensational Picture with an Archer, and Picasso's witty The Glass of Absinthe — a bronze that joins ten of Mrs. Smith's distinguished Picassos here. These works, together with those by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Odilon Redon, Auguste Rodin, Georges Braque, André Derain, and Alberto Giacometti, chart presentation in this volume and the exhibition it accompanies salute the taste and extraordinary generosity of Louise Reinhardt Smith, who has donated or promised most of these masterworks to The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Each full-color illustration is accompanied by a commentary that eloquently illuminates the essential context of the art and provides new insights into the collection as a group. These discussions are supplemented with full catalogue notes, references, and an exhibition history.
