DESCRIPTION

This single-gallery exhibition celebrates the recent gift of an extraordinary group of 33 artist-illustrated books and additional prints from the collection of the late Reva and David Logan. The Chicago-based couple assembled an important collection of deluxe artist books and donated approximately 300 of them to the Museums from 1998 to 2001. Selections from that gift were featured in Artists’ Books in the Modern Era, 1870–2000, a major exhibition at the Legion of Honor in 2001, the same year that the Logan Gallery of Illustrated Books was inaugurated as an exhibition space at the Legion. Additional artworks were given by the Logan Foundation in 2012.

The recent gift includes many great treasures, including Sonia Delaunay-Terk’s La prose du Transsibérien et de la petite Jehanne de France (1913); Divers poemes (1941) a unique manuscript by Paul Éluard illustrated in watercolors by Pablo Picasso; and a beautifully bound edition of Joan Miró’s Á toute épreuve (1958).
