For the last century, the Art Institute has supported the achievements of the most distinguished artists from Europe and America, acquiring and exhibiting now-beloved works of Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, and others. I've perused it so many times between paintings for inspiration.

James N. Wood was the Director of The Art Institute of Chicago for 25 years. Perhaps no other collection in The Art Institute of Chicago is more renowned and beloved than the American and European paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He also served as president and chief executive of the Getty Trust in 2006 and before taking over the Art Institute, he was the director of the St. Louis Art Museum for six years. Some of our more notable works have become modern icons: both Grant Wood’s American Gothic (page 280) and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks (page 293) are now emblems of American culture.

The Art Institute of Chicago houses some of the most celebrated European and American paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. James N.

Wood aus der Reihe Tiny Folios From the Director of the Art Institute of Chicago comes a fascinating and handsomely illustrated miniature book which presents well-loved masterpieces of modern art.

This Tiny Folio book highlights some of the most celebrated European and American paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that are part of the permanent collection at The Art Institute of Chicago. Included in this collection are numerous masterpieces of Realism, Impressionism, Post–Impressionism, Surrealism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, and other aspects of Modernism. Today a number of these paintings are revered as icons of modern Western culture, emblems of the inspired experimentation that has taken place on both sides of the Atlantic. For the last century, the Art Institute has supported the achievements of the most distinguished artists from Europe and America, acquiring and exhibiting now–beloved works of Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, and others. This folio is presented as both an introduction to this collection and as a survey of the styles, subjects, and themes of Western art of the last two centuries, from the linear classicism of Jean–Auguste–Dominique Ingres through the optical studies of Claude Monet and the Impressionists; from the lyrical, colorful abstractions of Vasily Kandinsky to the fractured picture planes of Pablo Picasso and the Cubists; from the enigmatic compositions of Salvador Dali and the Surrealists to the media–appropriated Pop–art portraits of Andy Warhol. These magnificent paintings eloquently narrate the discussions of the nature of art, quality, innovation, style, and form that have defined the modern era in art history.

Besides a tear on the front cover,the binding has given away.'Good" was the description advertised,it proved to be not 'good' or even fair,'poor' is a more apt description.Tell me how I go about returning it to get a refund.Kevin McCaughey

One painting per page. 302 pages with pictures. Decent index. Fun to peruse. Good color.

The Tiny Folio series is simply wonderful! As a frequent traveler who loves to discuss (share) art, I make it a habit to bring these miniature art books with me whenever I can.
This version showcases the Art Institute's well known pieces. Included are works from John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassat, Toulouse-Latrec, Gauguin, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Pissarro, Degas, and Suerat (A Sunday on La Grande Jatte).
Okay, that's a long list, but it's just a sample of what's inside!
The book offers a delightful mix of styles, concluding with Warhol, Mondrian, Lichtenstein and Pollock.
The pictures are, of course, quite small, but the book is too! That's what makes it so lovely! It can go anywhere. And never have I seen a better representation of such a variety of artists at such an inexpensive price.
(And, this is a book you can let the smallest toddler look at! It's just right for little hands!)
