About the Book
The 1913 Armory Show is remembered as the moment when the American public was introduced to European avant-garde art, by artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. Published on the Show’s centenary this striking volume re-examines this pivotal moment in American artistic and political life, shedding new light on the artists represented, and on public and media reception of the works.
