Summary

Summary

An anthology of more than 200 drawings, watercolors, pastels, and gouaches by almost as many modern and contemporary artists--from Matisse, Klimt, and Schiele to Paul Klee, Jim Dine, and Man Ray. The works appeared in an exhibit at the Salzburg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. In his introduction, Weiermair (director of the museum), discusses various approaches to figural representation as well as artists' erotic fascination with the body. He includes photos of several sculptures which were also part of the exhibit. Distributed by Abbeville Press. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
