About this item

On February 17, 1913, the American Association of Painters and Sculptors opened the Armory Show in New York. The ad-hoc association had started out with the modest goal of showing some of the ''new'' art coming out of Europe--Duchamp, Matisse, Picasso and many more of today's acknowledged masters. What they ultimately created was a sprawling showcase of some of the most ground-breaking (many said subversive) art America had ever seen.

''The New Spirit'' collects four pamphlets the Association originally produced and sold at the Armory Show. With excerpts from Gauguin's provocative Tahitian journal, Elie Faure's enthralling essay on Cezanne, and more, each pamphlet offers an enduringly original approach to some of modern art's most interesting figures. Long out of print, this new, expanded edition reintroduces readers to artists and ideas that remain as powerful today as they were nearly a century ago.
