Contrasts of Form – Geometric Abstract Art 1910–1980 (The Museum of Modern Art, 1985) is an exhibition catalogue that portrays a selection of MoMa’s collections of non-figurative art. The book is authored by Magdalena Dabrowski and John Elderfield.
Celebrating an extraordinary gift to The Museum of Modern Art – the 249 works of geometric abstract art which constitute the Riklis Collection of McCrory Corporation – this book presents selections from that gift in the context of key works chosen from the Museum’s other holdings in the same area, thus providing an overview of one of the most important and vital traditions within modern art.
