Summary
Lincoln Kirstein was a polymathic writer, critic, curator and impresario: a key connector and an indefatigable catalyst whose sweeping contributions to American cultural life in the 1930s and 1940s shaped artists and institutions. Best known for cofounding the New York City Ballet, he is also a crucial figure in the Museum of Modern Art's early history. He championed photography and figurative art; established the Museum's short-lived Dance Archives and curatorial department of Dance and Theater Design; acquired a significant trove of Latin American art for the collection; and contributed an alternative vision to a museum known for its devotion to abstraction. Published in conjunction with an exhibition devoted to Kirstein's expansive view of modern art, this volume also explores his wide-ranging and overlapping professional and social networks in New York City and beyond. The richly illustrated book features paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs and costume and set designs by artists including Antonio Berni, Paul Cadmus, Walker Evans, Raquel Forner, Jared French, Frances Benjamin Johnston, Gaston Lachaise, George Platt Lynes, Elie Nadelman, Ben Shahn, Honoré Sharrer, Pavel Tchelitchew and Joaquín Torres-García--
