A New York lawyer with Virginia roots, T. Catesby Jones acquired an extraordinary collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures by some sixty artists working in Paris during the early twentieth century. Jones's collection of almost three hundred works, divided between two Virginia institutions after his death, is reunited here in an illustrated catalogue with a full-color checklist accompanied by entries on twenty-four of the artists. Some are the best-known figures of this crucial era (Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Masson, Lipchitz); others are now less familiar (Lurcat, Bauchant, Marcoussis). Considered together, they provide a comprehensive view of modern art in Paris up to World War II and bring Jones's legacy to a wide audience for the first time.
