Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Robert Rosenblum is one of today's most acute observers of American art — a critic, curator, and art historian whose writings helped establish the reputations of Lichtenstein, Johns, Warhol, and Frank Stella and who continues to influence the contemporary art scene. This book collects Rosenblum's 50 best essays from the last 40 years — most never before published in book form — to take readers on an exhilarating exploration of the meanings, movements, personalities, and paradoxes of American art of the 20th century.

Whether examining "My Life with Rothko" or de Kooning's "fatal women, " Koons' Made in Heaven or the Starn Twins' Crucifixion, Rosenblum's essays are unfailingly provocative and illuminating. A rich selection of illustrations makes this a feast for everyone interested in modern art.
