Throughout the twentieth century, the evolution of mainstream modernism in the arts has been shadowed and complicated by alternative expressions intended either to set back the clock or to redirect the stream of "progress." This book, published in conjunction with an exhibition drawn from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, explores the antimodernist impulse and, in so doing, presents a new vision of the complexities of modern art. In an in-depth study, Robert Storr, Senior Curator in the Museum’s Department of Painting and Sculpture, traces the development of what he calls the anti-avanr-garde, from its first appearance as the widespread "return to order" in European art after World War I through the reemergence of figuration in international work of the 1980s.
 
Storr discusses the social, political, and historical forces affecting paintings, sculpture, drawings, and prints, along with the influence of such major figures as Pablo Picasso, Otto Dix, and Philip Guston on the ascendancy of classicizing, narrative, and so-called traditional art at various times in the twentieth century. The fact that artists often crossed the boundary between modernism and the anti-avant-garde — and that their aesthetic choices were not necessarily aligned with their political views — may surprise readers, Storr also looks at changing notions of taste and the reception of avant-garde art in the United States, a process in which The Museum of Modern Art played a key role.
 
Among the art reproduced in this richly illustrated volume are works by School of Paris painters Balthus and Henri Matisse; American artists Georgia O’Keeffe and Ben Shahn; Neue Sachlichkeit affiliates Max Beckmann and George Grosz; Surrealists Giorgio de Chirico and Salvador Dali; British figurative artists Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud; and postmodernists Francesco Clemente and Gerhard Richter.
 
The exhibition that this book accompanies is part of a larger cycle — Making Choices — that is itself one element of MoMA2000, a three-part series of exhibitions that both explores the Museum’s unparalleled collection and develops new ways of looking at some of the most compelling and powerful art of the last hundred or so years.
