KIRKUS REVIEW

In a richly informative, sumptuously illustrated anthology, Mr. Rosenblum traverses the ""traditional"" scope of Cubism, while fully developing it for inclusion as a firm springboard, and intelligently relates its mass, many faceted effect on the sculptural and pictorial styles of later movements through 1937 both in America and Europe. How the formative period of Cubism (1907-1914) illustrated by the works of Picasso, Braque, Gris and Leger was expanded to influence the works of Villon, Feininger and Davis, and how the seeds of its identity in new forms, inspired such artists as Duchamp, Marc, Miro and Chagall furnishes an illuminating perspective on 20th Century art.
