During this golden age Cubist art, which had begun before the war, continued as a positive and influential force, and came to accentuate above all else the autonomy of the work of art and the gap between art and life what has more recently been dubbed the Modernist position. However, Cubism was challenged by both conservative and radical rivals, and in this absorbing book, Christopher Green focuses on the debates that revolved around Cubism in the twenties, shedding important new light on both the Cubists and their adversaries.
