Sabine Eckmann with contributions by Bradley Fratello, George V. Speer, and H. W. Janson
This catalog accompanies the exhibition H. W. Janson and the Legacy of Modern Art at Washington University in St. Louis. The exhibition highlights paintings and sculptures by such artists as Max Beckmann, Alexander Calder, Juan Gris, Paul Klee, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso, that were instrumental to H. W. Janson's understanding of modern art, as well as later purchases including works by Jean Dubuffet, Arshile Gorky, Mardsen Hartley, and Jackson Pollock. The catalog illustrates the works in the exhibition as well as many other objects Janson acquired. In addition to Sabine Eckmann's essay on Janson, it includes texts that explore the reception of modern art, and a lecture by Janson heretofore unpublished.
