Presumed First Edition Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 9.5 x 11 in.: 120 pages 

006007006007: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Introduction by Josef Helfenstein. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "In the early 1940s, John and Dominique de Menil began to acquire art. Collecting in an intuitive and personal manner, the de Menils gathered things in which we believe, as John phrased it, and over time developed an inspired collection that would eventually find a permanent home at The Menil Collection in Houston. In addition to building their own holdings, the de Menils were committed to extending their vision to major museums in Europe and America, especially France. This beautifully illustrated book showcases some fifty works that the de Menils acquired over the decades, including pieces by such major twentieth-century artists as Lee Bontecou, Christo, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Jackson Pollock, Jean Tinguely, and Andy Warhol, as well as an important group of African, Oceanic, and pre-Columbian works.

Boards and pages are clean, unmarked, bright, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Much of what we know about how steamboats looked between about 1835 and 1900 comes from the meticulously detailed paintings of John and James Bard, twin brothers who were born in New York City in 1815, coincidentally the same year that Robert Fulton died. The Bard brothers taught themselves to paint, turning out their first joint work at the age of twelve, and they became the greatest chroniclers of the steamboat era. Working for owners, captains, boat builders - anyone who would commission a ship's portrait - John and James Bard turned out thousands of stunning paintings that have long been treasured by museums and collectors. Sometimes regarded as folk artists because of the naive directness and simplicity of their paintings, the Bards created works that have become icons of Americana."
