Alfred Maurer : at the vanguard of modernism by Stacey Epstein( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered the most accomplished American artist to adopt fauvism, Alfred Maurer (1868{u2013}1932) tirelessly explored the boundaries of artistic expression throughout his career. From his cross-fertilization of Fauvism between French and American circles to his channeling of abstraction in his late radical works, Maurer proved to be a formidable creative force in expanding the potential for artistic expression in American art. Consisting of over 70 master works, Alfred Maurer: At the Vanguard of Modernism, a major traveling exhibition organized by the Addison Gallery, assesses Maurer{u2019}s singular accomplishments and contributions to American painting in the early decades of the twentieth century. Tracing themes that run throughout the full scope of his work, the exhibition illustrates the invaluable contributions this progressive artist made to the development of modernism in America
