Kandinsky, Wassily and Diego Rivera) GROHMANN, Will, F. Morlion & Georges Marlier
Selection chronique de la vie artistique. First edition. Presentation Copy
Antwerp: Editions Selection, 1933

Presentation copy from one giant of Modern Art to another. Kandinsky's signed presentation copy to Diego Rivera

4to (10" x 7") Leather (full contemporary smooth-finish Mexican sheep) with gilt decorated borders on covers, spine lettered in gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers. [1-2] 3-96, [4] pp., numerous text illustrations, many full-page and on coated paper, including a half-tone photographic portrait of the artist.

Warmly inscribed and signed (Berlin, 1933) by Kandinsky to Diego Rivera, the best-known Latin American artist, who made early contact with the modern movement in Paris.
This work includes an homage to Kandinsky written by Diego Rivera. Rivera made his famous assessment of Kandinsky (translated in part): "I know of nothing more real than the painting of Kandinsky-nor anything more true and nothing more beautiful. A painting by Kandinsky gives no image of earthly life-it is life itself. If one painter deserves the name 'creator,' it is he. He organizes matter as matter was organized, otherwise the Universe would not exist. He opened a window to look inside the All. Someday, Kandinsky will be the best known and best loved of men."

Rare, especially signed.
