When The Museum of Modern Art first opened its doors on 8 November 1929, it was considered a radical experiment. Who would have thought that a museum devoted entirely to outrageous modern art would 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 unrivalled collection of modern and contemporary art. Spanning the museums entire history, this delightful book of cartoons is a wonderfully enjoyable and witty celebration of the Museum and the lively public debate it has often inspired.
