BACON, Mardges
John McAndrew's modernist vision

John McAndrew's Modernist Vision tells the compelling story of the architect,scholar, and curator John McAndrew, who played a key role in redefiningmodernism in the United States from the 1930s onward. The designer of the VassarCollege Art Library---arguably the first modern interior on a college campus---andthe curator of architecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1937to 1941, McAndrew was instrumental in creating a distinct and innovative aestheticthat bridged the European modernist lineage and American regional vernacular.Providing a fascinating glimpse into McAndrew's life, his associations withimportant architects and artists, and the historical context that shaped his work,this book is a thoroughly researched testament to a man who left a powerful markon the evolution of American architecture.
