Bequeathed to the Guggenheim Museum by Justin K. Thannhauser, this sparkling collection features important works from the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and early Modernist periods, including 32 paintings and works on paper by Picasso. In addition to the impeccable reproductions of every work in the collection, this book includes a fascinating new essay on Thannhauser, a leading art dealer in pre-World War II Europe whose family's gallery was the first to represent Picasso as well as the Blue Rider Group. This revised edition includes two essays on the period as well as a dozen insightful texts on the highlights of the collection, which include paintings by Cézanne, Degas, Gauguin, Renoir, van Gogh and, of course, Picasso.
