An extensive survey of the abstract and non-objective art movements that flourished in prewar Paris, this catalogue features fine illustrations of 263 paintings, sculptures, assemblages and other works by some 100 major artists, including Van Doesburg, Taeuber-Arp, Pevsner, Kandinsky, Schwitters, Klee, Albers, Mondrian, Helion, Man Ray, Miro, Picasso, Calder and Gabo. Eleven essays describe the circumstances that established Paris as the center for the international avant garde, discuss the reception of abstract art in the city and the impact of individual artists on stylistic developments in the 1930s, and review the aesthetic ideologies that distinguished such groups and movements as Cercle et Carre, Art Concret, Abstraction-Creation, Unism, De Stijl and Constructivism.
