About the book:

The Thannhauser family has a long history of collecting art. It was a Thannhauser who founded the Moderne Galerie in Munich before World War II; when Justin K. Thannhauser fled Nazi Europe, he continued with his wife to collect important paintings, and their collection is represented in this book. The Thannhausers bequeathed their impressive assortment of impressionist, postimpressionist, and early modern paintings to the Guggenheim Museum. Famous works such as Picasso's Woman with the Yellow Hair, Renoir's La Moulin de la Galette, and Toulouse-Lautrec's At the Moulin Rouge are just a few of the treasures in this collection that also includes works by Gaugin, Manet, Degas, Velázquez, and other artists of equal importance. The book is filled with skillfully reproduced images of the works, and the plates are accompanied by insightful essays that discuss the paintings and sculptures as well as the Thannhausers' background as collectors in prewar Europe and America, all providing a unique insight into the collection.
