A Collection in Lieu of Memoirs
Lincoln Kirstein's life in the arts spans two thirds of a century. Many of the artists he championed, often against great odds, are indispensible in our consideration of twenttieth century art today. In lieu of written memoirs, Lincoln Kirstein has commissioned the great works in his personal collection to be photographed in a remarkable series of eight by ten, four color transparencies. to these he has added extensive captions revolving around anecdotes and aesthetics. It is the perfect way to view his accomplishments. the collection is reproduced in full page, four color plates, each object and room exquisitely photographed.
9 x 12 inches
84 four-color plates
