How New York Stole the Idea of Modern Art by Serge Guilbaut
Book Description"A provocative interpretation of the political and cultural history of the early cold war years. . . . By insisting that art, even art of the avant-garde, is part of the general culture, not autonomous or above it, he forces us to think differently not only about art and art history but about society itself."-- "New York Times Book Review"

Chatting with Henri Matisse, Hardback (September 2013)
