The expansive collection of the Triton Foundation (in the Netherlands) contains approximately 250 paintings, drawings, and sculptures from more than 170 artists. The core of the collection consists of Western art dating from 1870 to 1970. Many important movements and artists from this century of creative production are represented, and the collection as a whole offers a fascinating overview of artistic developments from Impressionism to modern art. Avant-gardes, 1870 to the Present features the diverse and celebrated artists of the Triton collection, including works by George Braque, Paul Cezanne, Willem de Kooning, Edgar Degas, Roy Lichtenstein, Edouard Manet, Lucian Freud, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, and Andy Warhol. A checklist of artists' works as well as technical descriptions, basic literature, origins, and exhibitions for each work make the publication a useful reference tool.
