Modernism and the Museum Asian, African, and Pacific Art and the London Avant-Garde Oxford English Monographs - hardcover

ISBN: 9780199593699

ID: 474017420

London: John Lane, 1911. Very Good. 2 volumes (xl, [2], 502, [2] p.; xiii, [3], 541, [1] p.): frontispieces in each volume, 113 additional plates (a few in color); 26 cm. Publisher's dark blue cloth with gilt-stamped spine titles and cover titles; white decoration. Top page edges gilt. Vol. 1 frontispiece is a tissue-guarded collotype portrait of Lady Charlotte Schreiber in her drawing room. Vol. 2 frontispiece is a color illustration of antique Persian glass. Title pages in red and black. A number of pages unopened. Lady Charlotte Elizabeth Bertie Guest (1812-1895), later Lady Charlotte Schreiber, while married to her first husband played an significant role in the study of Welsh literature and language, making an important English translation of the medieval work the Mabinogion. With her second husband, she travelled throughout Europe collecting ceramics, much of which she later gave to the Victoria and Albert Museum in her husband's memory. She also collected fans, board games, and playing cards, which she donated to the British Museum. In Very Good Condition: edges are lightly rubbed; loss of some of the white illustration, particularly on the spines; front cover of vol. 1 slightly soiled; foxing throughout on pages of text, primarily along upper edges and fore-edges, but only very lightly on margins of a few plates; otherwise clean and tight., John Lane, 1911, Oxford University Press. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 264 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.7in. x 0.8in.Modernism and the Museum proposes an entirely new way of looking at the evolution of Modernist art and literature in the West. It shows that existing surveys of Modernism tend to treat the early stages of the movement as a purely European phenomenon, and fail to take account of the powerful and direct influence of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific islands operating via museums and exhibitions, particularly in London. The book presents the poet Ezra Pound and the sculptor Jacob Epstein as two seminal figures whose development of a Modernist aesthetic depended almost entirely on innovations adapted from extra-European visual art, and makes similar revelations about the work of related figures such as Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Eric Gill, T. E. Hulme, Laurence Binyon, Richard Aldington, Amy Lowell, Charles Holden, William Rothenstein, Ford Madox Ford, James Gould Fletcher, James Havard Thomas, W. B. Yeats, and D. H. Lawrence. The writing is engaging, but the scholarship is rigorous, and a large quantity of previously unpublished evidence is made available from the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Institute of British architects, the Tate Gallery, and several private collections. The book positions the museums of London - and especially the British Museum - as the Wests most significant hub of transcultural aesthetic exchange during the early Twentieth century. It essentially proposes that, far from representing a development rooted in provincial European culture, Modernism was in fact the result of an unprecedented willingness in the avant-garde of the West to engage with the rest of the world.
