This is the fourth volume of Irving Sandler's major history of American art since 1945.

The 1980s brought other new tendencies - neoexpressionism and media, deconstruction, and commodity art. Sandler discusses the major and minor artists and their works; movements, ideas, attitudes, and styles; and the social

The fields of David Smith by Candida N Smith( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Smith, the innovative and masterly twentieth-century sculptor, strove to create works of art that could be viewed "without reverence or awe" because they were, in his words, "natural ... statements of peaceful pursuit." Intrinsic to this hope was a conviction that his monumental sculpture belonged in the elements, with sky and earth as its visible reference points." "The Fields of David Smith is published to coincide with a three-year exhibition in the expansive landscape of the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York. The aim of both book and exhibition has been to recapture the experience of viewing Smith's work during his lifetime, when it was deployed with care and exuberance in ever-changing arrangements in his fields at Bolton Landing in the Adirondacks."--Jacket

More than eighty illustrations complete the first comprehensive look at the career of this influential artist."--Jacket

A sweeper-up after artists : a memoir by Irving Sandler( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over fifty years Irving Sandler has been a vital presence in the New York art world. Frank O'Hara called him, in a memorable poem, "the balayeur des artistes," the sweeper-up after artists. He has been a friend or acquaintance of virtually every important American artist of the postwar period, and his art criticism and books constitute the first and most comprehensive critical and historical account of this extraordinary period. His personal chronicle is the living memory of the New York art world, from abstract expressionism to the present day."--Jacket
