THE MACHINE: AS SEEN AT THE END OF THE MECHANICAL AGE: THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART EXHIBITION MONOGRAPH

Hulten, K. G. Pontus (Curator); Osterlin, Anders (Artist/Designer) & Legg, Alicia (Photographer)

New York City, NY: Museum Of Modern Art, 1969. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. New York City, NY: Museum Of Modern Art, 1969. Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 220 pages. Retrospective Exhibition Monograph. One of the greatest books on its subject ever published. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by the Museum of Modern Art: Regular-sized volume format. The boards are, legendarily so, unique: A silkscreen pictorial cover that is archivally embossed/printed on aluminum metal that is hinged at the spine (in order to hold the contents). A sublime work of art in and of itself, it was created by Anders Osterlin from an original photograph by Alicia Legg. Curated with an Essay by K. G. Pontus Hulten, one of the most important art scholars of the 20th century. Art by various contributors, a Who's Who of 20th-century art history. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition held at the Museum of Modern Art New York (MOMA) in 1969, which travelled on to several other major venues. Presents the Museum of Modern Art's "The Machine: As Seen At The End of The Mechanical Age". The single most important and influential retrospective on its subject. Creator and destroyer at a time when its reign is threatened by other tools, here is THE exhaustive and definitive look at The Machine, as it has inspired virtually every major figure of the 20th century (in no particular order) : George Melies, Boccioni, Man Ray, Ribemont-Dessaignes, Max Ernst, Popova, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Fernand Leger, Ettore Bugatti, Alexander Calder, Rene Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hans Bellmer, Tinguely, Claes Oldenburg, Giorgio de Chirico, Andreas Feininger, Alberto Giacometti, George Grosz, Hanna Hoch, Paul Klee, El Lissitzky, Malevich, Bruno Munari, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Kurt Schwitters, Severini, Tobey, Vesnin, Tatlin, and perhaps most important of all, the Bauhaus School. Among others. "The Machine", as an idea and an actual tool, has provoked and stimulated artists since time immemorial. Think only of Leonardo da Vinci's fantastical mechanical inventions, meticulously imagined and drawn by the greatest artist/genius of the Western tradition, many of which since realized in our time. "Visionary" has always meant having a cutting-edge, revolutionary, and "sui generis" view of art (as well as worldview) that visualizes another world we call The Future. An absolute "must-have" title for art book collectors. <b><i> This title is a great book. This is one of few copies of the Retrospective Exhibition Monograph still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: The fantastic metal cover of this outstanding survey is a work of art that no serious book or art collection could do without. Copies available online command hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. </b></i>Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. Some of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. .
