Description

Edited by Adina Kemien-Kazhdan
 
The Israel Museum's collection of 20th-century art spans a broad range of creative styles, from the pioneering European avant-gardes to improvisatory and minimalist painting and sculpture of the 1970s. This lavishly illustrated publication, which accompanies the opening of the Museum's renewed collection galleries, exemplifies the many currents in modern art, demonstrating its vitality and its diversity.
 
Some 250 works are highlighted, enriched by dialogues with artworks from other fields, represented in the Museum's encyclopedic holdings, whether Cycladic figurines, African masks, or recent additions to the collections by contemporary artists. The publication features, masterworks by Bacon, Braque, Duchamp, Giacometti, Miro, Modigliani, Pollock, Schiele, Soutine, Warhol, and many more, and reflects the exceptional concentration in Dada and Surrealist art that has made the Israel Museum an international center for the study of these movements.
