Conrad Marca-Relli may have been written out of art history -- there’s no mention of him in H. H. Arnason’s magisterial History of Modern Art (even though, in his 1971 book on Marca-Relli, Arnason celebrated his special place in the history of collage) -- but the exhibition at Knoedler & Co. in Manhattan of Marca-Relli’s "New York Years 1945-1967" makes it clear that he not only has special place in the particular history of collage but a crucial place in the general history of modern art.
