Lincoln Kirstein’s Modern
Lincoln Kirstein’s Modern

Lincoln Kirstein (1907–96) has been called “the closest thing to a Renaissance man of culture that 20th-century America has produced.” Best known for co-founding the New York City Ballet, Kirstein was also a writer, critic, curator, and impresario whose contributions to American culture helped shape artists and institutions in the 1930s and ’40s. Published alongside a recent exhibition at MoMA, Lincoln Kirstein’s Modern features an eclectic range of works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and costume and set designs, celebrating his expansive perspective on modern art.
