3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A vibrant collective portrait of the legendary figures who powered the tumultuous post-war New York art scene ... De Antonio shows artists (and their critics and patrons) gossiping, drinking, and talking about life and art, and in the process illuminates the genesis of Abstract Expressionism. Footage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's landmark exhibition New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970 supplement the film."--Container
