Product Overview

When The Museum of Modern Art first opened its doors on November 8, 1929--in less than 5,000 square feet of rented office space in midtown Manhattan--it was considered a radical experiment. Who would have thought that a museum devoted entirely to "outrageous" Modern art could be successful? But succeed it did, weathering both the stock market crash of 1929 just a week later and a storm of controversy that did not dissuade the crowds from going to see what all the fuss was about. Today, MoMA is one of the leading institutions of its kind in the world, with an unrivaled collection of Modern and Contemporary art. Spanning the Museum's entire history, this delightful book of 87 cartoons culled from the pages of The "New Yorker" magazine, is an enjoyable and witty celebration of the Museum and the lively public debate it has often inspired.
