ARTS YEARBOOK 1
The TURN of the CENTURY, Jonathan Marshall, Publisher/1957 First Edition



Excerpt from the Introduction:

"There has been a tendency in the publicity by which modern art has recently been promoted to the general public to diminish its variety, its contradictions, the sheer historical richness of its development and growth, into a summary and easily assimilable image. But we diminish its full importance to ourselves when we try to abstract it from its complexly human contingencies.
In turning to the art of "The Turn of the Century" the contributors to this first ARTS YEARBOOK have tried to focus on some of these contingencies.

The first essay "Modern Art at the Turn of the Century" by Hilton Kramer deals, inevitably, with the major figures of Parisian art in this period, Van Gogh, Seurat, Cezanne, Matisee, Picasso, Braque and others and, eschewing the legends which have acummulated around them, tries instead to evaluate their achievements in terms of the avant-garde values by which they themselves lived.
In the second essay "The World of the Eight" by Leslie Katz, the American scene is considered through the eyes of the group of artists who have passed into history as "The Eight".
In two essays: "New Perspectives on the Old Masters" by Alfred Werner and in "From Pre-Raphaelitism to Bloomsbury" by Vernon Young, the radical transformations in our judgements of the old masters are brought into focus and the moving, if somewhat comic, struggle of art in England in this period is elucidated against the colorful background of literary polemic and massive bad taste.
The last essay of this First Edition: "The Discovery of Primitive Art" by Douglas F. Fraser gives the full background of the so-called discovery of primitive art in copious detail." The Editors
