"Although Samuel Abraham Marx (1885-1964) was born at the end of the nineteenth century, he had the eye of a modernist - as an architect, designer, connoisseur, and art collector. His vision was neither ostentatious nor grandiose, but subtle and quietly magnificent." "Ultramodern Samuel Marx Architect, Designer, Art Collector is the first monograph on this lesser-known but increasingly influential American designer. In more than 200 photographs, Marx expert and decorative arts dealer Liz O'Brien reveals many of his undiscovered projects, including houses that have been razed despite protests of preservationists, as well as his range of innovative furniture designs. Marx was also a noted collector of modern art who was sought after for his ability to integrate art in upscale interiors. The private art collections of many of his wealthy clients have, in the last 40 years, been dispersed to major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as well as the Art Institute of Chicago."--Jacket. || Contents: Introduction -- Settling in -- Cafe society -- Florene and Sam at home -- All in the May family -- West coast connections -- Perfect patrons -- Chronology & credits. || Design Modernism (Aesthetics) -- United States.
