Edition Notes

American Abstract and Figurative Expressionism: Style is Timely Art is Timeless is an important contribution to the study of Abstract Expressionism.

58 painters and sculptors are featured.

Each of these artists have 2 works shown (full page) one abstract and one figurative work and an artist's statement. The reproductions are excellent. There is also a Bio, and a listing of solo exhibitions and group exhibitions for each of these artists. An amazing amount of research and love went into this new production of the New York and Californian Schools abstract and figurative expressionism. You can see that these schools were actually a bonafide community of artists.

This 254 page book was sumptuously printed and has a 12 x 9 1/2 inch format. It has a black cloth binding and a handsome dust jacket with ALL the names of the listed artists. This platinum dust jacket has black and red lettering which pops-out and is a stunning tribute to the artists.
