The William S. Paley Collection: A Taste for Modernism
By By William Rubin and Mathew Armstrong

By William Rubin and Matthew Armstrong

William S. Paley, founder of CBS, Inc., and a towering figure in the modern entertainment, communication, and news industries, was an enthusiastic collector of twentieth-century art and a committed supporter of The Museum of Modern Art. This volume presents his extraordinary personal collection of eighty-four paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings by some of the most important figures of modern art, including Paul Cézanne, André Derain, Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso, bequeathed to the Museum in 1990. Each work, presented on a full page, is accompanied by commentary.
