Art In Our Time: A Chronicle of The Museum of Modern Art




In stock

Edited by Harriet S. Bee and Michelle Elligott. Published by The Museum of Modern Art, 2004. First Edition.

“Chronicles the Museum’s story from its opening ten days after the stock market crash of 1929, in a few rented rooms in a midtown office building, up to the present day, in its new building on West Fifty-third and Fifty-fourth streets. The book presents a pictorial and documentary review of each year, and each important period, of the Museum’s history. It tells the story of how The Museum of Modern Art, New York, began as a small set of art galleries inaugurated by three ladies of means who had a passion for modern art.”
