5 Sachs, Paul J. ; Barr, Jr. , Alfred H. (Preface by) Modern Prints & Drawings; a Guide to a Better Understanding of Modern Draughtsmanship
This unique and authoritative book covers the creative hisotry of prints and drawings from the time of David, Goya, Delacroix, Daumier, and Corot to that of the mid-twentieth century in Europe, the United States, and Mexico. It is so organized that every paragraph and each of the explanatory captions gives the reader a better insight into some peculiarly intimate and delightful aspect of modern art. The book's 286 reproductions are by themselves a gallery of the past century, a gallery through which we move with one of the wisest and most genial of guides. Dr. Sachs' experience and comprehension of modern art are shared with every reader of this book. "Let us look at new as well as old aspects of art. Those who make the effort can learn access to fresh experience if they are unafraid of the new and strange, and determined to try. They may be surprised to find that art in modern times is realistic as well as abstract, traditional as well as experimental, conservative as well as radical. " Biographies are included.

Illustrations are in black & white. 115 artists are represented.; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
