Italy: The new domestic landscape | Emilio Ambasz, editor | Museum of Modern Art, publisher | 1972 | PART 2

Ambasz Emilio Ambasz
The Museum of Modern Art, United States of America

Centro Di, Florence, Italy, 1972

I have listed the page number in the exhibition catalog followed by the name of the object or brief description and in parentheses, the composition of the object.  In some cases, the listed composition refers only to the exterior casing.  For the purposes of furniture, fabric coverings are not usually considered.  A single asterisk indicates that plastic components appear with non-plastic components.  A double asterisk indicates that the bulk of the object is plastic.

Alphabetical listing of artists represented at the Italy: The new domestic landscape exhibition.
