Book News
Pach crawled museum floors as a child, took art classes from Robert Henri and William Meritt Chase, taught art and art history, spoke Spanish, Dutch, French, and German, and Italian, and wrote books and articles on the moderns, much of the material derived from numerous interviews and letters with the likes of Duchamp, Monet, Brancusi, Renoir, Rouault, and Rodin. Pach was also part of Gertrude Stein's Parisian circle and played a major role in organizing the Armory Show. Still, this is only part of his long career. The epistolary contents are in chapters that focus on exchanges with one personage, among them, Duchamp, Sheeler, Katherine Dreier, Lewis Mumford, Maurice Prendergast, Stieglitz, and Bernard Berenson. Each chapter has a short and informative introduction to the correspondent and the relationship to Pach. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
