Cahiers d'Art: No. 6, 1929.

Paris: Cahiers d'Art, 1929. First Edition. Quarto. Number six, published in 1929, of the legendary art journal Cahiers d'Art, founded in 1926 by Christian Zervos. Profusely illustrated in black and white, this issue includes numerous images of work by André Deraín, Maurice de Vlamnick, and Pablo Picasso. Essays by Georges Duthuit, Étienne Michon, Joseph Strzygowski, and Christian Zervos, among other writers. Recognized for its striking typography and layout, Cahiers d'Art was unparalleled in its integration of artists' contributions and collaborations. Emblematic of the Modernists' interest in non-Western and prehistoric artistic practices, the journal was also notable for its juxtaposition of early twentieth-century European art, architecture, theater, and film with African, Asian, American, and Pacific Island art forms, as well as ancient sculpture and cave paintings. A significant document of Modern art history, providing key insight into the early careers of the era's great artists. Text in French. Near fine in printed wrappers, with moderate sunning to the spine and a few scratches to the front panel. Lovely copy.
