Many assume that modern works of art are easily preserved and that their whereabouts can be readily established, thanks to sophisticated documentation systems. This is often not the case, posits Jennifer Mundy, who in this history points out that many important works have disappeared over the last century due to war, theft, natural catastrophe, or a deliberate act of destruction by the artist. Grouped into ten sections according to how the art work was lost, this unique book—which features more than 50 illustrations—recounts the stories behind vanished masterpieces by such artists as Wassily Kandinsky, Marcel Duchamp, Kurt Schwitters, Joan Miró, Frida Kahlo, Christo, and Keith Haring.
