"This volume reveals one of the world's finest private collections of early twentieth-century art. Long known to experts and scholars, the Werner and Gabrielle Merzbacher Collection contains many masterpieces linked by a vivid use of colour. Outstanding works by Cezanne, van Gogh, Picasso, Derain, Matisse, Braque, Nolde, Kirchner, Kandinsky, Klee, Leger, Beckmann and Calder, among many others, and displayed here in all their vibrancy." "The eminent colour theorist John Gage examines the works in the collection in the context of colour theory and colour practice in early twentieth-century art, while Stephanie Rachum discusses the genesis and development of the Merzbacher Collection. A series of scholarly catalogue entries by numerous authorities completes this beautiful publication."--BOOK JACKET.
