Abrams PP Purchase, NY; New York YR 2000 SN 0810967235 9780810967236 0934032149 9780934032148 AB "This volume by Linda Nochlin explores Frank's paintings of the past decade, particularly her large-scale triptychs, which in form are reminiscent of the classic Christian altarpiece. Among the more than forty full-color illustrations of her work are foldouts revealing both interior and exterior views of these monumental works, which incorporate the unifying themes and imagery that have dominated Frank's work for thirty years: lyrical and mythical figures, manifestations of the natural world, and ambiguous spaces. In her hands, this personal vocabulary is subject to unlimited reconfiguration, establishing Mary Frank as a visual poet and a major figure in the art of this country." "In addition to Nochlin's descriptive interpretation of Frank's most recent work, the book includes a chronology of Frank's life, from her birth in London and move to the United States as a child, to her early training in art and dance, to her publication, collection and exhibition history, and the awards and honors she has received."--Jacket.
