The New York school; a cultural reckoning by Dore Ashton ( Book )
34 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the emergence of Abstract Expressionism after World War II, the attention of the international art world turned from Paris to New York. Dore Ashton captures the vitality of the cultural milieu in which the New York School artists worked and argued and critiqued each other's work from the 1930s to the 1950s. Working from unsifted archives, from contemporary newspapers and books, and from extensive conversations with the men and women who participated in the rise of the New York School, Ashton provides a rich cultural and intellectual history of this period. In examining the complex sources of this important movement--from the WPA program of the 1930s and the influx of European ideas to the recognition in the 1950s of American painting on an international scale--she conveys the concerns of an extraordinary group of artists including Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Philip Guston, Barnett Newman, Arshile Gorky, and many others. Rare documentary photographs illustrate Ashton's classic appraisal of the New York School scene
About Rothko by Dore Ashton ( Book )
14 editions published between 1983 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a critical biography of Russian-born American painter Mark Rothko (1903-1970). Rothko's works were considered to be in the abstract expressionist style, whose canvasses articulated many of the ideas and feelings of modern art, particularly the New York school. The author concentrates on Rothko's influences -- the poets, philosophers, world events, and other artists who helped shape his imagery. The author uses interviews, Rothko's own writing, and her conversations with the artist to portray the complexity of his genius and the scope of an artist's working life

16 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Michael Auping's valuable text provides an introduction to the life and art of Arshile Gorky as well as an insightful consideration of the grand psychological landscape The Liver is the Cock's Comb, 1944, a work pivotal to the development of Gorky's style. Dore Ashton writes a lucid account of this artist who tends to resist classification, contributing an art historical overview of Gorky's appreciation of such modern innovators of abstraction and Surrealism as Miro and Kandinsky. Matthew Spender provides biographical details of Gorky's early years, while a selection of Gorky's personal letters further sheds an intimate light on the artist and his achievements

The writings of Robert Motherwell by Robert Motherwell ( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), one of the leading American Abstract Expressionist painters, was also a theorist and exponent of the movement. His writing articulated the intent of the New York school --Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Adolph Gottlieb, Franz Kline, Arshile Gorky, and others--during a period when their work was often reviled for its departure from traditional representation. As founder of the Documents of Modern Art series (later renamed the Documents of Twentieth-Century Art), Motherwell gave modern artists a voice at a time when very few people understood their theories or work. This authoritative new edition of the artist's writings about art includes public lectures, essays, and interviews. Impeccably edited, with an informative introductory essay and rigorous annotation, it is illustrated with black-and-white images that elucidate Motherwell's writings
