Paris: Cahiers d'Art, 1927. First Edition. Quarto. Number nine, published in 1927, of the legendary art journal Cahiers d'Art, founded in 1926 by Christian Zervos. Profusely illustrated in black and white, this issue includes images of work by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Henri de Tolouse-Lautrec, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Essays by Georges-Henri Riviére, E. Tériade, and Christian Zervos, among other writers. Three sheets advertising issues of Cahiers d'Art and an expedition to Mount Athos have been laid in. 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. Text in French. A significant document of Modern art history, providing key insight into the early careers of the era's great artists. Small tears along the edges of the thin spine, spine a bit darkened, top edge lightly bumped, else a bright, very good copy in illustrated wrappers.
