Accompanying The Great Upheaval: Modern Art from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910–1918, which explores the tremendous creativity and innovation that characterized the years leading up to World War I, this catalogue investigates the Guggenheim’s engagement with modernism and the institution’s early commitment to collecting works by such artists as Constantin Brancusi, Marc Chagall, Robert Delaunay, Vasily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, and others. The book is fully illustrated with five plate sections––each highlighting a period of artistic production from 1910 to 1918––with corresponding cultural time lines and essays by Tracey Bashkoff, Emily D. Bilski, Milton A. Cohen, Megan M. Fontanella, and Tara Ward.
