5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century
Picasso, Braque, Léger, and the Cubist spirit, 1919-1939 by Kenneth Wayne( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents art and design in France during the years between the two World Wars, in an effort to dispel the perception that Cubism was only a pre-World War I phenomenon. After the war, Cubist painting became more varied, colorful, and accessible, and began to affect other media such as furniture, fashion, cinema and architecture. What had begun as a rarefied pictorial style became a popular language. The first essay addresses Picasso's abundant and varied cubist painting. The second essay treats the art of three major Cubists -- Picasso, Braque, and Leger -- in the context of the various cubist idioms that developed. The third essay, also broad in scope, examines the significant relationship between Cubism and the decorative arts in France

Picasso, Braque, Léger : masterpieces from Swiss collections( Book )

7 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The current exhibition had its genesis in casual conversation several years ago with Ernst Beyeler of Basel, Switzerland, and his American liaison, Kurt Delbanco. The proposal was advanced that Beyeler might be willing to lend a selection of works for exhibition in the United States. Originally some two dozen paintings by Picasso were selected by the museums, but this past summer, as enthusiasm for the exhibition mounted, the number of works increased dramatically. Braque and Léger were added both to complement and contrast with the works by Picasso, and several private Swiss collectors were persuaded to lend works to help fill in certain gaps. The final result was a selection of eighty-three works that well represented the diverse careers of Picasso, Braque and Léger." -- Foreword
