This dazzling volume enables art lovers everywhere to savor the delights of one of the world's finest private collections of modern art. Long known to experts and scholars, the Werner and Gabrielle Merzbacher Collection is unique in that the owners have only been willing to collect an artist's very best works -- true masterpieces. Displayed here, in vibrant full color, are outstanding works by Cezanne, van Gogh, Picasso, Derain, Matisse, Braque, Nolde, Kirchner, Kandinsky, Klee, Leger, Chagall, and Calder, among many others. The earliest works are by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, but the collection focuses primarily on the Fauves and the German Expressionists.Published to accompany an exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Arts, this book will appeal to all who love modern art and color.
