Collection of the Société Anonyme: Museum of Modern Art 1920, Dreier, Katherine S.; Marcel Duchamp;  George Heard Hamilton (Edited by)
52 Dreier, Katherine S.; Marcel Duchamp; George Heard Hamilton (Edited by) Collection of the Société Anonyme: Museum of Modern Art 1920
New Haven Yale University Art Gallery 1950 no First Edition Printed Wrapper (softcover) Very Good Collection catalogue 10" x 7 1/2" 
The Société Anonyme was conceived by and created in 1920 by Katherine S. Dreier, Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray all artists committed to "the new movement in art", Modern Art. They assembled a membership of about 170 like minded artists who then assembled a collection by purchase, gift or donation of more than 1000 works. The "Museum of Modern Art" in the title is not the museum we know today as MoMA, which was established about a decade later. Drier and Duchamp intended the Collection itself as a Museum of Modern Art which would circulate through exhibitions for the education of the public. The catalogue lists 84 such exhibitions; the Collection also loaned works. In 1941 the open Collection was given to Yale University, in 1950 the Collection was closed to further acquisitions. The Catalogue was published upon that closing. It represents the full Collection which represents many artists who were or were to become stars and other artists who have found oblivion. The Collection and the Catalogue are rich documents of artistic activity in the first half of the 20th century. Each artist is listed with a full statement by another Societe artist-member and her/his works in the collection. Appendices list Lectures, Publications, Exhibitions. An Index lists each artist and the writer of the artist's statement. Clean throughout, no marks, tears or folds; tight binding. The wrappers are faded at the edges, especially along the spine.
