Sperling, E.M.
Catalogue of a Loan Exhibition of French Primitives and Objects of Art in aid of the French Hospital in New York.

New York F. Kleinberger Galleries:1927.

A truly outstanding loan exhibition of work of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. As Louis Reau points out in his interesting Preface, up to this point most art historians viewed French painting as having begun around 1532 when the Italian influence arrived. Viewing the superb works illustrated and described here one can only gasp (genteely, of course) at such snobbishness.

7"x10", 204 pages, illustrated throughout in b&w, softcover. Minor cover wear, and the covers have parted from the text block. A little binder's flexible glue will fix that.
