On behalf of the International Program of the Museum of Modern Art, I wish to express my gratitude to the artists who have taken part in the exhibition and to the lenders whose names are listed below. The exhibition was made possible through the generosity of the collectors, museums and dealers who graciously permitted their paintings to travel for over a year. Their understanding of the purposes of the exhibition and their readiness to help overcome the difficulties of assembling it deserve the greatest appreciation. I am indebted for expert assistance in organizing the exhibition to Frank O'Hara of the International Program and in preparing the catalogue to Miss Helen Franc. The dealers representing artists in the exhibition have been most helpful in supplying information and photographs. Grateful acknowledgment is made also to the photographers who supplied portraits of the artists, and to the various publications from which statements by the artists and others have been quoted.
