Abstract:

"Arshile Gorkly was an unabashedly ambitious artist, 'apprenticing' himself to a series of masters - most notably Cézanne and Picasso - in order to become, at last, the master of his own personal style. His transformation of traditions into an utterly untraditional approach in turn inspired the Abstract Expressionists, who achieved a fame that Gorky died too young to enjoy ... Dr. Melvin P. Lader chronicles the artist's life from his bittersweet youth in Armenia through his precocious development as an artist and teacher to that long, purposeful evolution of his mature style."--Publisher's description.
