(no rating) April 27, 2013 - Boston.com - Mark Feeney, Globe Staff

Every work of art is also a work of history. Created at a specific moment in time, it can’t help but reflect that moment. That’s true even of art removed from any external reality. Among the many virtues of the Museum of Modern Art’s recent “Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925” was how vividly it evoked those years. These were works shaped by their time even as they helped shape how that time subsequently came to be seen.
