YR 2001 SN 0300089694 9780300089691 0962320390 9780962320392 AB "Clyfford Still (1904-1980), best known for his compelling abstract works with jagged fields and powerful expanses of color, stands among the giants of post - World War II art. Together with his peers Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, and Barnett Newman, Still helped shape the new vision of art that came to be called Abstract Expressionism. This illustrated book presents nearly forty of Still's greatest works, painting that represent the full flowering of his style." "The contributors to this volume explore various aspects of Still's art, his accomplishments, and the New York School. David Anfam presents an overview of Still's career from the 1930s through the 1950s. Neal Benezra focuses on a provocative, unexplored element of Still's studio practice: his habit of painting replicas of many of his own works. Brooks Adams examines Still's artistic legacy and influence on succeeding generations of artists."--Jacket.
