A Fable of Modern Art
by Dore Ashton
Publisher: University of California Press 1991
Number of pages: 128
Dore Ashton's masterly analysis of modern art grows out of a consideration of Balzac's brilliant and little known 'philosophic' story The Unknown Masterpiece in which the concerns of Cézanne, Picasso, and the abstract expressionists are strikingly prefigured.
