Cahiers d'Art: No. 10, 1930.

Paris: Cahiers d'Art, 1930. First Edition. Quarto. Number ten, published in 1930, 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 André Masson and Pablo Picasso. With essays by Fernand Léger, Ambroise Vollard, 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. Text in French. A significant document of Modern art history, providing key insight into the early careers of the era's great artists. Former owner has penned the number 2 on the front cover, else very good in printed wrappers, with a long chip at the spinefoot and foxing to the front and rear panels.
