Product description

Masters of Colour: Derain to Kandinsky
Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2002.
First published on the occasion of the exhibition Masters of Colour: Derain to Kandinsky 80 Masterpieces from The Merzbacher Collection Royal Academy of Arts, London, 26 July – 17 November 2002.
Soft-bound; 230 x 280 mm; 175 pages. No dust jacket. Profusely illustrated.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound though the book is very slightly cocked. Some marks on the back cover. The contents are clean and unmarked.
“This sumptuous volume reveals the delights of one of the world’s finest private collections of early twentieth-century art. Long known to experts and scholars, the Werner and Gabrielle Merzbacher Collection contains many masterpieces linked by a vivid use of colour. Outstanding works by Cezanne, van Gogh, Picasso, Derain, Matisse, Braque, Nolde, Kirchner, Kandinsky, Klee, Léger, Beckmann and Calder, among many others, are displayed in all their vibrancy. The eminent colour theorist John Gage examines the works in the collection in the context of colour theory and colour practice in early twentieth-century art, while Stephanie Rachum discusses the genesis and development of the Merzbacher Collection. A series of scholarly catalogue entries by numerous authorities completes this beautiful publication. Testimony to the Merzbachers’ tenacity as collectors, this book proclaims a personal and passionate commitment to the power of colour in the making of modern art.”
