Book Description:
Modern Art on Display: The Legacies of Six Collectors is structured as a sequence of case studies that pair collectors of modern art with artists they particularly favored: Duncan Phillips and Augustus Vincent Tack, Albert Barnes and Chaim Soutine, Albert Eugene Gallatin and Juan Gris, Lillie Bliss and Paul C&eacute,zanne, Etta Cone and Henri Matisse, G. David Thompson and Paul Klee. The case studies are linked by a thematic focus on the integral relationship between the collectors acquired knowledge about the work they amassed and their innovative display models. This focus brings a new perspective to the history of collecting and interpreting modern art in America for nearly half a century (1915-1960). By examining the books the collectors themselves read and analyzing archival photographs of their displays, the author makes a case for the historical significance of how the collectors presented the art they acquired before their collections were institutionalized.
