About this Item

A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with sunning to the spine and slight edgewear. Poet, critic, impresario, gadfly, visionary, tastemaker: more than anyone, Guillaume Apollinaire embodies the frenzied art world of Paris in the early 20th century. His rampant enthusiasms and antipathies, and his remarkable acumen, make him still today the most evocative commentator on the intellectual ferment of the time. In 1905 he championed Picasso and in 1907 he promoted Braque in reviews that were amazingly sharp and prescient. He first identified the importance of Delaunay, Duchamp, and Rousseau, coined the word Surrealism, and almost singlehandedly pushed Cubism into the mainstream. This edition of Apollinaire on Art is the only collection in English of these seminal and ever fresh writings. Most of these essays on art by the most important poet of his generation, are published here in English for the first time. Apollinaire was an early defender of cubism and was responsible for the meeting of Picasso and Braque. 546 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 24265

About this title

Synopsis:

Poet, critic, impresario, gadfly, visionary, tastemaker: more than anyone, Guillaume Apollinaire embodies the frenzied art world of Paris in the early 20th century. His rampant enthusiasms and antipathies, and his remarkable acumen, make him still today the most evocative commentator on the intellectual ferment of the time. In 1905 he championed Picasso and in 1907 he promoted Braque in reviews that were amazingly sharp and prescient. He first identified the importance of Delaunay, Duchamp, and Rousseau, coined the word "Surrealism," and almost singlehandedly pushed Cubism into the mainstream. With a new preface by Roger Shattuck, this edition of Apollinaire on Art is the only collection in English of these seminal and ever fresh writings.
